Well, I chose Medicine for various reasons.
- First of all, I love studying our body; it’s wonderful to know how your body really works.
It’s amazing to discover, that there are a lot of cells that we can’t see with our own eyes, which have to work daily to keep us alive (Thanks guys!)
Our heart keeps beating day by day, many organs function without our influence. What can you say to that, rather than Wow?
- A sentiment I didn’t find in any other profession other than medicine, is when you help a patient. Whether you save his/her life or do anything to improve it and the next thing you see is the smile on their face. This sensation is indescribable and it fills your heart with joy and accomplishment. It’s the best feeling in the world! To know you’ve done something to help others and to know they get to continue with their everyday life, all thanks to you.
- Medicine is international. Being a doctor, you can work in the whole world, you can help anyone, around the globe, even without knowing local language…Medicine is universal, it speaks for itself. One day, you may be sitting in your private practice in London, and next day someone can call you as an expert to visit Africa, or New Zealand, to help with a certain case. As a result, you may visit places you’ve only dreamed of. Probably not the worst outcome 🙂
My big dream is to become a Pediatrician. I love kids so much, I think they are much better than adults (that’s my personal view for sure) as they are honest and straightforward. You cannot trick a kid, they will see right through you.
A kid’s smile is worth more than all the money of the world. When I am sad or not in the best mood, the only thing that can put a smile back on my face is a cute baby, with those chubby cheeks and giggling. After seeing this- everything is right in the world again 🙂
Medicine is not a normal course, it’s very hard and it consumes all your life. But, it also gives you a special view of life and certain path that u have to follow, if you decide to begin this journey.
If you want to be omniscient and study everything, your life will be hard. Our body’s anatomy is too much complicated for any person to memorize to the very detail… it will take you years.
With medicine, studying never really ends and you can count on many sleepless nights with book in your hands.
Ultimately, if this is your passion, I say, go for it! If you want to be the best at your job, first you have to love it. With medicine you can call it tough love 🙂
After finishing medical school, you will have to decide upon certain specialty you want to take. This is a breakthrough moment for many doctors.
Some may decide not to take a specialty at all, becoming general practitioners. Yet, others will become surgeons, gynecologists, oncologists knowing that they enrolled into medical school only to pursue that career.
Certain percent may even take into account the salary given, and as a result choose the specialty according to current market demand.
Therefore, be sure to choose what you love doing. You know the saying: ” Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
I believe this is true. And in the medical field, especially… When you love what you do, spending days at the hospital, taking care of patients, comes much easier. No one wants to be treated by a grumpy or unhappy doctor. And as a doctor, the stakes and expectations are high- you must always do your best! But in the end, it’s also very rewarding.
So word of advice, when it comes to your specialty, choose wisely!
