Should I become a pediatrician despite that I am not interested in science?

Asked Viewed 222 times

The main focus of the medical field is science, and although that is not my interest, I would love to become a pediatrician. Will this disinterest eventually make me regret studying to become a pediatrician? I love working with kids, and I can really imagine myself in this career. #medicine #working-with-kids #confused #majors #medicalschool #will-i-regret-doing-it

Hi Aleja,

I don't think a disinterest in science should prevent you from pursuing your dreams of becoming a pediatrician. However, as you already know, a large part of the medical field is based on science. I don't think you need to be interested in it, but you need to be able to understand it, and get good grades during your undergrad studies in order to get into a medical school.

I personally know people who dislike the sciences, but loves practicing as a physician. :) Hope this helps.

Best regards,
