An enormous amount of sunk cost plays into the medical profession. You dedicate four years to pre-med, four years of medical school, $300,000 worth of debt, and another three to five years to become a physician. The further you get, the more sunk cost you have, and the more trapped you become.
How can you avoid the sunk cost fallacy and have the courage to leave everything behind and pursue your true passion? Listen to this episode with Dr. Rami Wehbi as he shares his experience leaving his medical internship to do what he actually wants to do.
