Opted to be a psychologist after struggling as Psych/PreMed and working for an ambulance company for real-world experience. For some reason, most of the MD’s with ADHD that I know work in the ED.

That and psychiatrists, but I honestly could not tell you if they are ADHD, something else, or just tapping into their own supply… which is a different conversation for a different day.

I am a fan of the Wacom Bamboo. It let’s me take freehand notes, but saves them digitally.
Unfortunately, my penmanship sucks too much for the script to text feature to work.

Unfortunately, I am very responsive to stimulants (1 hour medicated gives me 6 hours of unmedicated productivity) so I don’t have a lot of transferable advice.
