Do you want to be a doctor?

Medicine is a very traditional career, although it is not for this reason the most chosen among the wide academic panorama that is offered today. People who choose to study Medicine must take this career as a true vocation, since it is nothing like the others. Many students choose it due to family tradition or pressures from their environment and then regret it. “A doctor cannot know only what he sensed that they would take in the final exam, he must have knowledge about the entire human body, about each of the existing pathologies, their causes, symptoms and possible treatments, be constantly updated and forget about the traditional working hours. It is a vocation, not a profession ”, indicates a professor of Microbiology and Parasitology. In this regard, various doctors from public hospitals in the region ratify the professor’s statements, claiming that he is a doctor “twenty-four hours a day, every day of your life.”

As a doctor, you will take care of people’s health, helping the sick and preventing many diseases, helping to create a healthier society.

Medicine is one of the longest courses in both public and private universities, and those who enter it know that their lives will change completely. It is not a profession for everyone, it is essential to feel the need to help others on a daily basis, putting their rights above their own.

The Medicine career is much more demanding than the rest and requires a level of commitment from the students much higher than that expected from other professions. In Medicine, students should study because they are passionate about it, and not because they will be evaluated. Studying for the evaluations would show great irresponsibility, since when the student who acts in this way is received, he will have the lives of many people in his hands. The medical student must be a committed person who loves the career they have chosen, otherwise they are not in the right place.

Why study medicine?

  • Because you are passionate about the human body, everything it contains and each of the processes by which it works as it does.
  • Because you are passionate about investigating, asking questions and analyzing, since this is the task that you will perform daily when you receive yourself on the pathologies of your patients or you can dedicate yourself exclusively to it.
  • Because you have a vocation for service and you consider yourself more altruistic than selfish.
  • Because you feel the need to dedicate your life to others.
  • Because you believe that you can contain a person to deliver bad news and you are strong enough to see someone suffer.
  • Because there is a particular branch of medicine that you are passionate about and you will specialize in it (although this may vary throughout the course).
  • Because you think you are capable and you like to read a lot, since you will invest many years and a long time in your career.
  • Because it has an extremely broad field of work, which will allow you to choose between working attending patients or behind a desk completing data and signing forms.
