Rachel’s Answer

Absolutely. I was in school/training for 14 years after high school to become a surgeon. My job is incredibly fulfilling, and I would not choose to go into any other profession.

Richard’s Answer

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.

Tia’s Answer

It depends. My brother in law is a doctor and he loved going to class everyday. He now has to do continuing education and he enjoys those too. My mom wanted to be in the medical field but hated school. She became a lab technician as a result because back then it didn't require more than one year of college. She was paid much less than being a doctor would be but she also didn't have the headache of school.

I think you have to ask yourself what you really love to learn about and find a job that uses that. If you would rather do than learn, find a trade school or certificate program in the medical field. Look at your local big hospital's job listings and see the variety of jobs they have. Find some that look interesting and look at what qualifications they require.
