That's perfectly fine, of course, but I do think adcoms will want to hear the full story, or at least a fuller, more convincing story than you're giving here. Especially at the caliber of schools you're looking to target.
I and others are suspicious because highly successful surgeons with many years of practice do not have the personality to just get up and leave their profession by choice, seemingly on a whim. A lowly resident in internal medicine, much more plausible... Even if you've thought about this for many years, that's what it'll look like, again based on the story you've posted. Or it'll seem like you're acting on a naive "grass is greener" type of impulse.
TBF, I believe this story. We have people like this at Penn.
Surgeons, with these kind of creds? Why are they there?
Fuck if I know. I should probably ask and find out.
