    Do you like medicine? biology? chemistry? physics? Do you like reading big ass textbooks with like 2000-3000 pages and like to memorize them, all of them, a huge stack of like 60-100 books? Then yes, maybe, dunno, its your life

    29 sounds too late to start. don't doctors go into unspeakable debt that they only get out of and start earning big bucks in the latter half of their career?
    also can't you just leave systems engineering? yeah it fricking sucks, what do you have, an ME? EE? go be a design engineer it's fun.

    the amount of stress involved in that is an amount i dont think any middle aged man could handle. during residency they have you pulling literally 80 hr work weeks at near minimum wage. by the time you would be doing such a thing you'd be like 43. you do this while losing your mind and having hundreds of thousands of dollars of debt looming over your head.

    none of above is from first hand exp but just what ive read from people claiming to be doctors. if you can pull it off good for you but the idea is pretty crazy

    Why would anyone ever want to become a doctor? The money isn't even that good for the amount of work you put in and the majority of the people you treat are obese morons

    Just get a job at a different company before thinking of jumping from one medium-stress career to one extremely-high-stress career. You'll probably hate being a doctor too.

      >medium-stress
      the systems engineers i know get worked like dogs. they're the definition of "clean it up wagie", where the shit in question is my moronic design that doesn't meet any of its requirements. nobody willingly takes those roles unless they're a sociopathic ladder climber.

        Still, I'd job hop before trying to career hop. Although I'm just a lowly software engineer, maybe that solution doesn't apply to systems engineering.

    You've still got about 25 good years for physical activity. Join a trade and retire early.

    You will need a 5-year medical degree, followed by a 2-year housemanship, after which you will probably be in a low-paid "just for experience" job for a few (3-5) years, cause no one wants a doctor fresh out of the classroom.

    Most people your age have a family to feed, so they cannot commit to going back and starting over. If you are unattached and untethered, you can do it. But you will slave away for 10-12 years before you earn anything significant, and medicine is more difficult than engineering. So if getting your engineering degree was hard, this will be harder, and take longer.

    Good luck.

      Can you cheat for your medical degree like I cheated for my engineering degree?

        You can cheat during university, but you will be easier to catch. And exams are always done externally, in a way that you cannot cheat.

        Cannot cheat there.

    homie I’m a doctor and if I could do it over again I would never go into medicine. My brother works for AI bigshot and has salary similar to mine with 1/4 of the bullshit I have to endure. If you become MD you will regret it, remember my words.
