      I think it might be psychiatrist.I wanted to become a psychiatrist when I was still dreaming of becoming a medical doctor. A psychiatrist doesn’t have to deal with mortality as much as a cardiologist or nephrologist or oncologist or gynaecologist have to deal with. The psychiatrists get good money per counselling session, and sometimes they get patients for life. However a psychiatrist wouldn’t probably be called at unearthly hours for intervention in a life/death matter. The other reason I recommend this is because I personally wanted to become a psychiatrist when I was younger and I find some of the diseases very interesting to study.
      But maybe I am mistaken. And in that case do correct me.
