I want to work in the medical field and become an orthopedist.?

Currently I'm a freshman in high school and I want to study medicine. The study of Orthopaedics has interested me and I want to follow a career path related to this field. Since this age and grade is the perfect time for me to plan for my future and think about what I want to be, I have some questions about this profession. Is it worth it? Should I dedicate the rest of my life in the field of medicine because it has good opportunities and pays good money or should I do it because it is a deep interest of mine? And if so, should I spend 8 years in college or switch to a medical school? What is the better option?

What do you enjoy most about your job? What skills are most important in your field?

I'm a gymnast down in Fairbanks, Alaska and I injure myself quite a lot. I've been down to the Sports Medicine place and I absolutely love the idea of Sports Medicine. When I grow up, my goal is to me a Sports Medicine Orthopedic. #sportsmedicine #jobs #orthopedic #medicine

Is getting straight A's a good way to get a good scholarship ? And what if you were to have one B ? Would that effect your chance to recieve a scholarship . Also what kind of scholarships could you get that would be very beneficial ?

I want to be an orthopedic surgeon which will require 4 years of undergraduate, 4 years of medical school, and up to 5 years of residency. So I know it will be very important to get a scholarship and I would appreciate your advice and opinions. #scholarship #college #financial-aid #university #medicine #orthopedic #residency

If I have a good college in my hometown (MSU of Texas), should I get my bachelors degree there . And then try to go to my dream college for medical school , or should I do all of school at my hometown college. Or should I just try to go straight to my dream college , which is either Texas Tech or Baylor.

I want to be an orthopedic surgeon and my parents have been asking me about my plan for college a lot recently. And I am just not sure which route would be best for me and my future career. #college #medicine #college-selection #doctor #medical #orthopedic #collegeadvice
