Testing the Water
Life is always changing. As of today it looks like I will be dipping my toes back in the employment waters. Now that one child is launched and married, two are in college, and one is nearly half-way through high school I am looking for a little paid employment. I will be teaching human anatomy and physiology at the local community college. I've never had any desire to get back into clinical medicine. The lawyers and the insurance companies took all the fun out of that. If I think about it, what I really loved about practicing medicine was the teaching. Family physicians don't cure a lot. What we do is educate our patients on both preventive and therapeutic measures for their health. So I guess I will let my inner teacher come out. School starts in a week. I have a lot to do to get ready. Lesson plans, labs, paperwork, etc are waiting for me.
