    What are the benefits of being a doctor?

    Advertisements
    Our members don't see this ad
    Besides the obvious, which is to participate in being a healer, what other benefits have you experienced in being a doctor or even medical student? Or that you have witnessed in doctors that you see/meet?

    They can be professional benefits, material benefits, psychological benefits, etc. Anything and everything.

    Please share. Thank you.

    As a general rule, the better it felt when you said it, the more trouble it's going to get you into.

    Apparently you get good health benefits as well for when you get obese from all those pharm rep lunches and doc lounge feasts.

    You can always tell the cop chasing you that you had an emergency
    if your plates have the MD, it's a plus then: License to road kill
    Don't forget to smile and say thank you mister uncle officer policeman
    I need to think about something...maybe you know what...

    Even if you aren't going to an emergency, cops generally cut you some slack if they know you are a doc. Got hit for 85 in a 55, cop saw my stethascope on the seat, asked if I was a doc, showed him my hosptal ID, he said "Slow down, doc....."

    Also, you can treat yourself out of the samples closet. I take Viagra, Levitra, and Cialis several times daily. I'm also able to keep my dad supplied with most of his meds, because medicare doesn't cover much.
