Abdihakim jamal: 😍😍 I'm watching and enjoying every day

Swaggy xox: I love school and the learning process. I also love science but ever since I was little, science is always my worst grades. I’ve taken chemistry and bio in high school and I’m just not good at. It’s hard to understand for me. Should I still pursue a career as a family physician?

Pizza Cat2459: An ad about something medical came on coincidence I think not

Noor Alnaji: Thanks you so much, this really helped me

Skorax: Lool everybody is saying it’s hard it’s hard .. ffs it’s hard for you, not everybody. I know ppl who got literally worse grades than me but yet they got into med school and are about to finish soon.. it’s not that hard they accept almost anybody. Not talking about a shitty med school. And if you love both medicine and physics. I’d recommend going into medicine than going into engineering SPECIALLY if you don’t have a scholarship that’s associated with space etc. because there is a huge salary difference between both. 2nd it’s not hard to work as a doctor .. almost I don’t see what’s hard ..reading reports and seeing your patients physically.. think.. act as you’ve been taught within the steps. The only “thing” you need to know is what to major in after finishing. You’ll also find if it’s FUN to do OR something you actually feel great doing , save , enjoy. Is when you get to do the interview and they’ll give you some cases to solve.. what and how you’re going to act. At that moment you can decide whether it’s the thing you want to peruse or not. Of course surgeries are in another story, it requires skills “mentally”.
Nothing is hard , I hate when people say it’s hard. I just graduated from high school with a high grade. I don’t think it was easy but it wasn’t hard at alllll. Everyone wants to show other ppl that he had worked hard for it and that it wasn’t easy.

Brian Edman: I laughed at the number of physicians stating that they would have rather been dermatologists, very true ;P

Rose97 lovestae: My family wants me to be a doctor because of the money while I want to be a doctor only so that I could be of some help to others. I don't want to see someone in pain .

David Fernandez: And another fact: Rod of Caduceus is not a medical symbol but the Rod of Asclepius is 😂

Asia Johnson: This was great. I'm currently going to college for my Bachelors in Business Admin and then from there I want to go to med school. The fact that the undergrad degree doesn't matter is amazing and a huge weight off of my shoulders, because I was stressing over how I should change my major. I want to be either a pediatrician or an anesthesiologist but I sometimes think I've started to late. I am currently 27 in my junior year of undergrad and i'm a single mother of a four year old. Does anyone that has started their doctor career late, have any pointers and/or tips? or even as a single parent?

kiwi kawa: i want to be a doctor to help people, but also because in the end my future family will have financial security and my kids wont grow up like i did. I understand ill be working long hours and be paying debt a while. but in the long run ill be making good money right?

Estheré Rougê: I'm confused about mentors in College. Do you have to pay for it?

Weak to Greek: Nope im a firm believer that having a plan B is planning to fail so I disagree with #10

Shawn Revenge: Thanks doc

Nicholas Haynes: I am a high school senior soon to enter the University of Rochester as a freshman on a premed track. If you have the time, I am wondering if maybe you can shed some light on my (possibly irrational) worries. I have wanted to be a physician since a very young age and am extremely determined to become one. I put a great deal of time into my studies and have every intention of continuing that in college. Obviously it is very hard to get into med school. However, assuming I continue my academic enthusiasm as well as my other interests, is there any reason to worry about being rejected from medical school? While I do have great confidence in myself, I cannot help but continue on the lingering thought of "not doing enough" to prepare for admission into medical school.
Thank you very much for reviewing this comment,
Nicholas Haynes

Carlos Garcia: Yes'

Jan Poonthong: So hard to understand

lilyrose mitchell: I'm doing biomedical science at the moment with the intent to transfer to medicine next year. (I originally wanted to do medicine but I got the opportunity to do boimed for free so...) this is useful.

Veronica Aloo: I never knew that becoming a doctor is not something very difficult but a anyway thank you sir for your encouragement

LAW OF GAMING: I get A+ on most of my subjects except for my native language class. I wanna be a radiologist but I think I’m too twitchy to be handling equipment like that. Should I still go for it?😂

Mary Denich: Amazing video! It is very helpful for people who want to become a doctor. I just graduated from a high school, and I think that it is very necessary to watch, made my life easier in finding things about this field
