    Remember this is about waking up tomorrow and finding yourself doing a certain job. So shoot for the stars!!! OBGYN it is!

Seeing as the criteria was 'dream job' rather than 'realistically achieveable job'? I'm genuinely interested in why people think being a midwife would be better than being an Obstetrician. Apart from the obvious fact that Obs get sued more.
    I'm a nurse and often get asked why not be a dr. It is so different. I wouldn't like to be a dr in the field I work in, it's just not me.

    I like to spend time with my patients giving holistic rounded care. I love that I do everything for these people, I mean literally everything as well as support their family, the dr just doesn't do that. In the icu where I work the dr will have about 10+ patients to manage where as I have one and my entire day is dedicated to just them.

    As others have said they are just totally different jobs, I know many nurses who could easily have become drs but they didn't want to.

    I'm very blessed to be well on my way to achieving my dream job. I absolutely love what I do now but there is always room to go further with it. If you'd have asked me 15 years ago if I saw myself doing my job I would say "not on your life!" In fact I went to uni to study a completely different field!

    It's funny how life takes you on these amazing journeys. If I hadn't of gone to uni back then I would have never met my husband who was the main person to help me realise what I really wanted to do in life.

    It's really interesting you bring this up as like you I'm also a vet so considered by many to have a dream job and not adverse to hard work and study. I do genuinely enjoy my work and miss it being on maternity leave but after I had my ds1 I actually considered retraining to do midwifery thinking it would be such a rewarding job as I found the help the midwives gave after having ds1 amazing. Didn't cross my head to be a obgyn even though it could be achievable albeit with longer training. It was the aftercare side that appealed to me rather than the miracle of saving babies etc. (although midwives do this too!)

    I don't want to be an ob, I would rather be a midwife.
    Although they are in the same field, they are different jobs with different sets of skills and responsibilities

    As a little kid growing up, I always wanted to be a doctor. And now I am one, it's a pretty good job. BUT...if I could have ANY job in the world, I would like to be the Queen. Not so much a job, as a position...but this is fantasy, right?!

    My dream job would be a radiologist. Health care with patient interaction but no bodily fluids and mostly sensible hours plus a decent pay packet.
