What's even funnier is that with a big name like Twitter on their resume, they can hop to any big tech company, do maybe 2/4 of work this time instead of 1/4 and earn close to their last drawn salary or higher.

I meant helping as in "saving" lives.

sorry if that wasn't clear.
Majority of medicine is NOT about saving lives.

Relieve suffering yes. Comfort yes. Improve quality of life.

This saving lives thing is maybe 16.9% of what medicine is
As a profession.

They're the same thing buddy...

Also it's not just Twitter, lots of Big N companies are like that as well so I don't know what you're trying to say here.

When someone refers to drs (in general) work as saving lives....
For sure they are not even healthcare workers.
Even Emergency Med drs dont "save lives" all the time as part
Of their work. They probably have the most but still
Cardiac cath lab yes but they dont work there all their hours
Medicine is not what lay people think it is.
.any things we dont know enough. Scratching the surface only.

Most are elective.
And even the acute stemi lifespan not great still

Iras officers save lives. They collect taxes, and ensure there is money for various social programs

Drs are overrated. Everything is destined, Drs do wat they are taught to do, anything beyond that is Gods will. Period.

Default Would like to hear your thoughts as doctors

Would like to hear your thoughts about allied health professionals as a pov from a doctor. Are they necessary in today's clinical practice? Or unnecessary?
