John’s Answer

Wow! A doctor is a great profession. If you are young, you might become better in science as you get older. If you are nearing the end of high school and science is challenging, there are lots of doctor-related jobs. For example, you could go into pharmaceutical or medical device sales. You may also want to explore some of the emerging companies that do telehealth like https://www.babylonhealth.com.

John recommends the following next steps:

Decide your chances of getting into a medical school.
Review jobs that require medical training, but where you don't have to be a doctor.

Lorraine’s Answer

The area of science is very diverse and some of the courses are difficult. You may want to explore the possibility of a science area that is more interesting or comes more natural to you and move forward with that. You mention that you want to become a doctor, and I am assuming you mean medical doctor. Within that field are so many subcategories that you can discover. Here is a link to the ultimate list of medical specialties and subspecialties. If social science is more your style, you may want to look into becoming a doctor in a mental health field, such as psychology. If math is more interesting to you, then epidemiology may interest you. The CDC defines epidemiology as the study (scientific, systematic, and data-driven) of the distribution (frequency, pattern) and determinants (causes, risk factors) of health-related states and events (not just diseases) in specified populations (neighborhood, school, city, state, country, global).
