Yeh, Think I have to agree, even at the risk of promoting medical ego-obesity.

You can't be unaware that there are plenty of people doing what you are proposing to do, who would give you important organs if it would let them do what you can already do.

Folks you are limited only by your imaginations. Imagine and then do it.

I have a friend who used to assist in high end TV installation jobs. Did this many years.

Then woke up one day and realized it was barely paying the rent.

Now he's amputating feet at a hospital.

ps He still has all of his kidneys

Don't listen to Chewy. You can teach English and practice medicine at the same time.

Hey, if it involves hot tubs and interns in bikinis, where do I sign up? :)

I'm a board-certified American physician recently out of training.

I enjoy medicine, but after 4 years of college, 4 years of medical school, and 4 years of residency (working for 80-100 hours per week), I am looking for both a change of pace and a change of scenery.

I will be moving to Taiwan in July.

Any tips on a finding a part-time (10-20 hours/week) teaching or non-teaching job in Taiwan?

I am not looking for a patient care type of job. However, I hope to find something that will allow me to use my medical education more than a job teaching English to elementary school kids.

Thank you in advance!



If this is your dream in life, I say go for it! Good luck!
