My intent is not to discuss and debate parenting principles. Instead, I'd like to focus on those medical students who often feel "trapped" while they're in medical school or residency. They feel like they have no other options. They can't imagine a job outside of medicine. They have substantial student loans. They feel like they would be disappointing so many people if they leave the medical field.
- Medical students don't learn about non-clinical career options in medical school.
- Medical students feel trapped because of their debt burden.
- Medical students may feel like they made a mistake about their career.
