Doctor - My future career
By Eduard Poienar
Being a doctor won't be an easy thing to handle. Being a doctor requires a lot of responsibility, precision and lots of patience. I know that doctors work in hospitals and clinics, helping hundreds of people recover or maintain their health. I would like to be a doctor because it is an interesting job and also because I have the qualities required.
- Review patient history
- Run tests on patients
- Help patient maintain or recover health
- Review tests and exams
Inside a hospital/clinic are good working conditions (most of the time). A hospital is a lot different than a hospital. Usually in hospitals, the doctors run special tests and they do surgeries while in a clinic, they will run tests and give you medication.
Education and Training
For a job in this domain you will need the Doctoral Degree and a Professional Degree. It typically takes from 11 to 16 years to complete your education, including four years of college (undergraduate school), four years of medical school and anywhere from three to eight years of training in a specific specialty area (residency training), depending on which specialty you choose to pursue. In order to take a medical class in Leyden I had to take Biology, Health and two years of science.
