Think about what 80k can buy in Alabama vs. Cali though. Food for thought...

If LA or Socal yea but northern cal not as much. The only major thing different is housing though. Think of this... would you want the same lifestyle i.e. house size, car etc. in rural Alabama or California? Pretty easy decision.

ER doctors are always on call. Thats why they are called emergency doctors.

LOL

If anyone is really interested in what goes on in the life of a medical interns/residents, I'd suggest reading "House of God" by Samuel Sherm. Very similar to what goes on in residency...

Maybe that's how they roll in Alabama, but ER doctors are on call, unless that changed last year which was the last time I'd talked to him.

as someone who has been through medical school, residency, and now doing military medicine - the glory days of going into medicine and becoming filthy rich are not as common as it was in the 80s and 90s....you go into medicine b/c you want to practice medicine for a living...not b/c you want to make tons of money.
-
that being said, i'd say that most physicians out there aren't going to starve - i'd say most (unless you end up doing solely community care work/primary care) will still make a salary in the 90+ percentile...there will always be the plastic surgeon, OB/GYN, neurosurgeons, radiologists that make 500k+ per year, but one has to realize that residency spots for those positions are few/far between - you end up competing for very few spots across the nation for residency slots...
-
and like some of the other posters have mentioned, you end up with a sizeable loan to pay off (remember what we all learned in college economics -about saving early...compounding interest and all that) - a doc that goes straight through school (college at 18, med school at 22, residency starting at age of 26) will graduate residency in their late 20's to early 30's - assuming they don't go into fellowship (subspecialty training). i know many of you guys in here are in your 20s and are already stashing away savings -whether it be through IRAs, stock market, 401k plans, etc... an average doc starts off at age 30 or so with 160-250k in debt on average (you account for college deferred loans and medical school loans as well as cost of living through all those years)....

so take all of that and plot out a savings graph comparing a 22 y/o college grad or even a 25 y/o with a master's degree who's been saving all along and compare that person to a doc with aforementioned loans - to make a long story short, it takes a pretty long time for the doc to "catch up" - i think my health economics professor in college plotted out the earning/saving potential of a school teacher compared to an avg. doctor - both had the same amount saved by the time they both turned 50...

okay, so i rambled on and on - hope that made some sense...for those interested in medicine - ya gotta go into it for the right reason (if your reason is money, that is a really bad idea - i bet all the medical students and residents who have posted in this thread can attest to that...long hours, crappy pay, TOTAL delayed gratification, seeing all your college buddies enjoying their new lives in the workfield while you continue to slave away..., etc)

If anything, nurses and doctors are still overpaid. Otherwise no one is hurting. (Well, those with work. It used to be there was a massive shortage with demand, but now there's a massive shortage with no funding )
