    Maybe the interventionalists have a million lying around.

    Otherwise it takes a long time.

    If I had saved every single dollar I made in full time employment as an MD after medical school and used it to pay student loans...it would have taken over 7 years of my full time work before I'd paid off just my med school loans. Full time is considerably more than "full time" too.

    I get paid well for what I do. I love my job most of the time. I wouldn't trade it. I feel like I made the best of my opportunities, but recognize that I had opportunities that others didn't. I don't make nearly as much as many people seem to think, though. I can't really imagine getting to the point in time of having a million in liquid assets.

    My sister teaches. If I ran the world, I'd lower my pay and raise hers. (Don't tell her, she'd just tell me I could accomplish this by sending her a check.) I'd also serious subsidize both of  the educations in exchange for service in needed areas. Current programs are not terribly effective in medicine.

    The plural of anecdote is not data.

    •  but you are counting internship (0+ / 0-)

      residency and any fellowships which a lot of people claim as "long hard expensive education."

      So doctors like to have it both ways.
