So many doctors are disenchanted with medicine – the regulations, the restrictions, the expense, and sometimes the patients’ attitude. It’s easy to understand how after all the years they dedicated to education, training and building a patient base they are singing the blues. Practicing medicine just isn’t what it use to be and certainly isn’t what many of today’s doctors envisioned. But its up to you to make it better – so quit singing the blues and do something.
Get back to basics. Think about why you went into medicine in the first place. Focus on those these. Then ask yourself how you can get back the zest you once felt. You have choices and you can make decisions. Don’t get stuck in the mud, do something to make your practice life better.
Be strategic. What is it you want and what will it take to get there? Start looking at the pros and cons and draw on your strengths. Seek the resources you need, be decisive – set goals and develop a path to achieve them.
Its up to you – Go for it! Quit singing the blues and take positive steps to make your future brighter. Then, let me know how your doing. Consultants can be your strongest ally.
