I completed residency a few years back, currently a medical (gm) ac.

Obviously, I will continue in my job until the entire covid thing blows over, but I just can't see myself doing my current job for the next 25-30 years..
I am not sure what opportunities are available outside for a gm specialist.

Guess this question may be more applicable to senior colleagues, but just curious if any specialist/family physician here is seriously bored of their speciality that they are trained in? (After doing the same things over and over again..)

Since u complete Im training alr
Go for icu subspec or sport Med or pall Med

Outside Im is quite useless. U canít really call yourself a specialist coz Im is fundamentally a generalist. Even more Jia lat than Geri.
So u end up same pay as gp.

Alternatively join politics or device companies or pharmaceuticals companies as medical director

Go run for politics
