I read the BMJ Confidential most weeks: am so pleased to see the response "I might have done" to the question "Do you have any regrets about becoming a doctor?" Most of the medics you interview are at the top of their field (they have to be, to be of interest to the BMJ!) and usually respond with "no regrets". It is heartening and encouraging for some of us who are not so enthusiastic about medicine to read that there is a niche for almost anyone in medicine! I do believe this is true.
