Hmmm, think I might be leaving clinical practice...maybe
Time for a change....looking at an opportunity to move into administration full time developing a new Center that will develop collaborations around the country and will focus on increasing value, re-engineering processes, examining population health, developing research on policy topics, and advancing health care systems.....
My passion lies in policy.....but my career has been clinical.......
Ugh....tough. FWIW, I haven't been officially "offered" the position, but senior leadership said literally I was the first person thought of by the group. Still have to go through the process.....
I'm not going to sleep for a few weeks....

You're a smart guy who formulates his thoughts clearly and relays them well. I think it will be a good move for you.
The magic word is Passion.. You used it to describe what you want to do. I think you said it all with that one word. Go with your passion.
If I were to beat you senseless with a tire iron, what color would you bleed?..The Missus
Life is too short to not do what you love.
Enjoy the move!
(besides, all of us here really need more smart guys working on policy, if you know what I mean)
We'll be back soon, there will be more of us, and next time we won't be dropping leaflets.

Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right......
I'd say jump at the policy job--Dog knows things need fixing and rethinking, and you are the kind of person who would help improve things.
Passion is good--one of the people who interviewed my wife commented favorably on how she could see how passionate my wife is about her work.
Oh, and maybe a Lounge-inspired program or two would be nice--I'm think at least a beet allowance or a pie deduction.
"When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking."
(Sir) Arthur Conan Doyle. Scientific American, January 18, 1896
Go for it. We need good, thoughtful people like you in policy positions. I am sure that you will miss the clinical work. But, you have the potential to impact many more people in a policy position than you do in one-on-one clinical work.
I try to be perfectly civil, until someone really pisses me off.
Agreed, make the move, be the one to make positive changes!
