just a few questions-
1)I want to become a doctor, because i feel i am a healer. But i also want to have a family. I just finished my first degree and want to apply to be a doc for next year, however do you think its possible to be a house officer or a first year resident and also raise a child? Or do you think i'd have to wait until after consultancy? I'd be nearly 38 then and i dont want to wait that long!
2)Also how easy it to become a consultant? After you pass the exams as a senior registrar are you automatically a consultant?
3)Does anyone know which fields in medicine are better for those who want a family? i.e more stable?
4) anyone whos raised a child while doing their med degree? how was it?
thanks for your replies!
