So I have reached a point in my career where I am seriously considering waving goodbye to finance and going back to train to become a doctor.
I'm early 30's, $150k all in per annum income and have a pretty cushy/interesting corp dev role.
This is not driven by any gripe with my current situation. Things are pretty good for me right now but I have always had a niggling desire to do medicine and keep telling myself to hang on and see where the finance route takes me.
I realise that it is very unlikely I will ever make more money in medicine compared to the track I am currently on. That's not what's motivating me. I also realise that I will be mid to late 40s by the time I get to where I want to be.
What's ultimately driving the decision is that as I have gotten older, money beyond a certain level has become less and less important to me. I ultimately find the role I am in (and finance in general) to be personally unfulfilling for me. I basically asked myself what would I do if money was no object and the answer is become a doctor.
So I was wondering anybody else ever heard of somebody doing something like this? I know it is very late and it will be a very difficult road but would love to hear peoples thoughts.
