What is mean by worthiness? Ask yourself what's your passion, what is your most valuable thing. It will differ person to person. I am pursuing pathology because I enjoy looking at the slides. There may be busy day or easy day in the career. Only if you have passion on the subject, you will be not exhausted. Nothing is permanent; nothing can be calculated for 100%. Enjoy your life and your every moment by doing what you like. Life is short.

Hi Chibuzor.

I am a Veterinary Surgeon and I hope my advice helps.

In the academic field as a surgeon, you’d have to collaborate with other specialists to publish papers and advance in career.

If however you enjoy holding a scapel, manipulating organs, reducing fractures and getting that adrenaline rush when a blood vessel pops or the tachycardia from hoping a patient pulls through your induced coma, then please become a surgeon.

The long hours spent standing in a theater make sense when you see the result in your recovered patient.

There’s a confidence surgeons have after every surgery that most medical professionals lack, it is earned through successful operations and I hope you get to expend that pride.

I cannot talk about human medic pay but I can tell you for certain that surgeries are not cheap and surgeons are not broke.

Goodluck with your career choices.
