Kal’s Answer

Great question! It really depends on why you're pursing that career.

Many folks may say "to help people" which is a very noble cause. However, I recommend to shadow a doctor you may know. While shadowing, ask them questions that help you answer your own questions. Coming out of that experience, your pursuit may be validated. On the other hand, it may guide you in other areas you never considered.

Now, there is absolutely a lot of dedication, patience and drive required into becoming a doctor. But, rewards will pay off if you're truly passionate in becoming one.

Best of luck!

Yes! It is absolutely worth it. There are a lot of long hours studying in the library followed by long hours in the hospital, but it is a fulfilling career. There are so many opportunities after medical school... different specialties appeal to different individuals. Or you can follow a nonclinical route in research or even hospital administration.
