    some doctors are for money, but some are not!

    Well I study dentistry which is kinda similar and I am motivated because I love the job haha, patient contact, getting to chat with your nurse, quite laid back.

    The only thing that would put me off doing this job if it wasn't so highly paid is:

    A) It takes long to study to become one and the course is quite intensive

    B) With the A-level grades you need to get on the course, you could do another degree that would earn you a handsome salary

    Asians generally do it ponce around Wembley, money status etc...thats the impression I get from a lot of the students these days. Although the number of white/english doctors is dwindling rapidly, most of them do want to do it for pure/genuine reasons.
