    I can’t see myself picking up a scalp or even doing clinics for a regular paycheque again. And if the zombie apocalypse comes then I guess I will be getting paid in chickens anyway and not likely regularly…

    I think you might have meant a scalpel but then who knows if you are into scalping  ?

    lol. Yes that's in my moonlighting job as a pathologist where I get to handle both items.  I think I might have fallen victim to a malicious spellcheck there! Anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking to it...

      I finished residency 13 years and 7 months ago and have been working at the same job ever since. Have maxed out income and PTO accumulation and that contributes to whatever financial success I've had. 8 weeks of PTO and $30k per year in retirement contributions, to say nothing of becoming the face of my specialty, acquiring a certain gravitas within the hospital, opportunities to influence policies and procedures, and the development of meaningful personal and professional relationships over time - all have greatly improved my professional satisfaction and quality of life. There have been some ups and downs but I've tried to maintain perspective and in the end it has been worth staying in one place.
