Estelle’s Answer

Most of my colleagues have worked until retirement age. They left because they have full and worthwhile careers. The few people that I know that left before retirement left because they suffered burn out. They found the stress of practicing medicine too burdensome.
If you are considering a career in medicine, remember to value exercise, close relationships with friends/family/colleagues, and time away from work. Sacrifices will be made, but make sure that you invest time and efforts wisely and carefully.

Dr. Jennifer’s Answer

People leave their profession or company for any number of reasons. I think sometimes it comes from having different expectations of the profession or position than the reality. My biggest recommendation for any student trying to find their career is before they decide shadow someone who is already doing the position you want. Shadow for at least one full day, that way you can see what it is like in the day in the life of that position. If you only see a few hours of the job it could paint a different picture than an entire day of work.

Now switching companies could come down to how that environment specifically is and is not a reflection of the profession as a whole. Do your own research before choosing a career and truly consider if it is something you want to do for a majority of your working life.
