To become a doctor is definitely not a walk in the park. Not everyone has what it takes to be a doctor.
In this blog, we will be sharing the insights of our students (now stepped out from Gullas College of Medicine as successful doctors) and that would excite you.
Are you also among those millions of students who dream of becoming a doctor?
Have you done fair research on this?
Surely, you would have done that.
You may have the perception that you really know what it is like pursuing a medical career.
But the fact is many of you don’t know what life is really like on the other side of the wall.
We believe this blog will give you a head start in your career in medicine.
In the medical schools, only the brightest of bright manages to get admission. However, even the most intelligent student finds the medical school to be totally different.
You may work very hard academically and end up being nothing more than average in the class.
Being aware of this beforehand would help you focus on pushing through.
Decide on a Specialty Earlier
Majority of the aspirants are so involved in the process of just entering into medical school that they seldom give thought on how to get into their specialties.
If you are really interested in a desirable specialty you have to make this decision earlier.
As some specialty is highly competitive and requires prior planning and excellent performance throughout the initial 2 yrs of medical school.
You become a different Version of yourself – An upgraded one!
Again, medical school is exhaustive. Over and over again your determination and stamina will be tested.
You will definitely have a lot of late nights studying during your college and several late-night shifts during your residency.
After going through all this, you step out as a totally different person.
This change is a part of you becoming an amazing doctor.
How much of your life will be spent becoming a doctor?
You cannot conceptualize this. Generally, it needs four years of medical school, 3-5 years of residency, and 1 to 4 years of residency, and one to four years of fellowship, if you choose that routine.
We believe this behind the scenes was valuable in determining if you wish to pursue a career in medicine.
In this blog, it’s quite clear that there are some challenges. However, there are plenty of rewards as well.
