I’m thrilled that you are thinking about becoming a doctor. The answer really depends on each individual, their background and their field. I’m not a medical doctor. I’m a Ph.D. which is different, it is an administrative / philosophical realm. Each type of medicine regardless of medicine for people, domestic animals, farm animals, etc. and there are so many specialists within each field as well. It is all very different. I would encourage you to do a bit more self exploration and then set up some email interviews / phone interviews or zoom interviews by reaching out to a few doctors in the field that you think you might be interested in.
Even if you decide not to be a doctor, its fantastic to be exploring things that interest you. It truly is the only way to find out what will end up being best for you.
Best wishes to you.
Trisha Scarcia-King, Ph.D.
