A few questions when you can get around to them (if you can).

I'm a pretty big gamer whose been looking at going into medicine. Growing up my passion was deadly infectious disease and BLS4 zones (Thanks Richard Preston), but I've really been looking at going into the medical field as an atypical student once I wrap up my masters in psych. I would end up starting around 32 so I know after residency I'd be a good deal into my 40's. How hard did you find school and residency? Setting aside my younger passion of infectious disease what are your feelings on psychiatry, pediatric oncology, and palliative care? Did you have rotations in those fields, how were they, and do you feel that there are skills you developed as a gamer that make you a stronger doctor?
