I am recently out of training and started my first private practice job. There are a lot of things that are great about the job, vacation, benefits, low stress, stable group, good pay. But the types of things and cases that I'm seeing/doing on a regular basis don't really excite me the way that I used to feel when I was back in training. Of course, when you're in training you are at the academic center where you get funneled all of the most interesting cases, but I didn't expect the difference to be quite this stark.
I was wondering if other people have had a similar experience in terms of changes when they went into practice, and how they dealt with it.
Did any of you all switch into a different private practice/academic job with a better experience? Or is this sort of excitement about doing these types of cases something that fades regardless of the job? Should I just be happy with a stable job with good benefits, vacation, etc, and seek fulfillment elsewhere in life?
I'm in the US if that makes any difference.
