Cristina’s Answer

My training to become a pediatrician lasted 14 years (I am 32 now). It’s half of my lifetime.
Also I went to Medical school in venezuela and then moved the US so kinda had to Lear medicine all over in English
But I would do it all over. I love my patients and helping them and their families.

Jemima A.’s Answer

Of course!
There is a reason for everything and anything one wants to become.

You didn't specify which doctor you mean but I will address both anyways!

1. Medical doctor; The purpose of becoming a doctor is to save lives. Because of how wide this field is, it is further subdivided into various specialties e.g Gynaecologist, Opthalmologist, Neurologist, Audiologist etc.
So, in any specialty, your purpose is either to help a situation medically.

2. Academic Doctor; This is the stage when one has acquired a PhD degree in any field he chooses. Preferably, related to his/her bachelors or Masters degree. The purpose of this is numerous.
Either for skill acquisition, promotion at one's company, research work etc.

I hope this helps Jaden
