Is becoming a pediatrician worth the schooling?
Hi, my names Reid I'm a senior in high school, and I've always wanted to become a doctor. I've researched all the fields in medicine, and pediatrics really interested me. I have done so much research on how to become a pediatrician, but it's so much school. I'm willing to put in this effort, but is it worth it? Please help me out. Thank you #pediatrician #pediatrics #doctor
I think that to truly decide for this field experience is important, you want to work with patients, see the life of a physician through shadowing and definitely see how you feel about science. I use to struggle in science but I do love it and worked hard and thankfully things got much better to where I even tutored for certain subjects. As a last note, I think being a physician is a rewarding experience, as well as pursuing this field, medicine is definitely not for everyone but for the ones who chose it I think it's because they cannot see themselves as anything else besides being a physician. I would also recommend to check out AAMC.org, the official site for the medical school journey, it has a lot of resources and information on how to be a successful premed student!
I wish you the best!

Yasemin has provided some great information and next steps you should use. I would also recommend talk to you guidance counselor to get more advice and information you might not be aware of. The medical field requires time in school and time with hands on experience. Your guidance counselor should be able to help you look at schools, scholarship opportunities, and maybe someone in that field you can talk with and interview to answer your questions.
