Odds of Hanging On

If you prove yourself in this career, your options will be limitless. You might run your own practice for thirty years or teach at a university until you hit retirement age. Or maybe you land a corporate job for a company that produces AIDS vaccines or medicine that eradicates cancer. Whatever the case, if you put in the time you should have no problem hanging on.
