    Hi

    I've been a podiatrist for a few years now and it's been really good fun. However, over the last few years I haven't been getting as far as I would have liked. I feel that other than the routine stuff there isn't much else to do now. I work in NHS and started a small private clinic on the side last year and it's sort of growing but nothing spectacular, at this moment I have no idea what potential it has or even if I have the business acumen to make a real success of it.

    I've seen a lot of pods move to medicine. My question is how have you found it? and is it a good idea (I'm well into my 30's).

    I realise it's a massive commitment and lord knows how I'll pay the bills. But by the same token I don't think there are any prospects for me in podiatry. If I leave it'll spell the end for the private clinic too (at least where I live currently, as I suppose I can always start new private work wherever I move to for the medical course).

    I haven't applied yet, just thinking about it. It's a hard decision which will move me out of my comfort zone - new city, new house, etc. Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks. :)
