You guys should also know that you don't really get to pick what kind of doctor you become. You don't just go to medical school and say "I want to be an Oncologist" and then they train you for it. Everything is based on exams. Oncology is probably one of the most, if not the most difficult fields to get into.This is exactly me. I want to help people but I'm not sure exactly how I want to help people. My whole life I was told medical was the way to go with the typical stable job stereotypes and what not. My original plan was to become an oncologist because I wanted to help people and I find cancer to be really interesting, but at the same time I don't know if I would be able to put myself through all the schooling knowing that it's what? 15+ years? I'm already having difficulty managing 2 jobs and taking all these science courses that I'm not even sure if I want to continue. So right now I'm trying to figure out what I have a passion for and what I'm genuinely interested in regardless of the pay.What occupations are yall seeking? For me becoming would be wondeful because I seek knowledge and have the desire to help people better themselves. I also really like money...Becoming a doctor for the money is a horrible idea. I happen to know someone who went through medical school for the wrong reasons and now has a lot of regret, but what can you do at that point? you've spent your twenties in school, you'll probably owe at least a couple hundred grand in student loans, so you have to keep moving forward with a career you chose for the wrong reasons. Don't pick anything based on salary, it's not worth it.
Anyways I want to be an anesthesiologist but realostocally I would be a psychiatrist, I dont know if I have the commitment for anesthesiology, or the chemistry skill
My friend also became an anesthesiologist and now he's worried because there is a lot of talk that nurse anesthetists will replace anesthesiologists one day as the country continues to move toward affordable health care (you can pay a nurse anesthetists significantly less than a doctor doing the same thing).
Really? That's an odd system. In England you get to pick and specialise into whatever field you want.
So if you want to be a GP (general practitioner), or a surgeon (You then get to specialise which field in surgery) or anything else. If anything in England grades determine where you'll have to work in the country, if you do very well it's more probable that you'll get your first choice hospital for your foundation years post med school
