UP: making a positive contribution to society, a positive impact on patients, empowering patients and learning from them at the same time

Hi Vanessa:
Based in my friend's Doctors experience the most harder part of their jobs are. Let the patient go, when there is nothing else to do for he/she, when you did 100% of you to save her/his live but unfortunately the person die . The feeling can destroy you OR make you stronger you decide that in you career as a doctor.
Great pay and unconditionally love from people you save every day

Good Luck!

Being a physician can be stressful, especially when the patients have an incurable illness. After years of education and training the feeling of helplessness can be devastating.
