How to get into Formula 1 through medicineWatch
Formula 1 is a huge passion of me. It's such a beautiful sport and working in it would be my dream. However, I want to study medicine and hopefully become a doctor. I understand there's a high level of unlikeliness that I will never be part of the medicine team in F1/FIA but there's no point not trying. Does anyone know how one would try this?
I have exactly the same passion as you for Formula One and Medicine but have no clue how to go about it either!
how did that happen
It's probably something I'll always dream about but hey don't let it stop you- where there's a will there's a way. Jeez, I sound so cheesy
Can't wait for the season opener wherever they decide to do it seeing as Bahrain is sorta out of the question at the moment.
there is ONE F1 racing doctor and he is an expert in anaesthetics and emergency medicine who replaced Professor Sid Watkins, a neurosurgeon who was the head of the medical team and first responder in case of a crash for over 20 years. There may be a few more doctor positions in the medical team, MAY being the key word but realistically becoming a F1 doctor is not really a medical career path since the position comes up extremely rarely, the job only ever goes to people in the top of a relevant field which rules out "younger" doctors and there is likely to be some politics involved in who gets the job, as in it would probably help to know the right people. like Sid watkins was friends with and got the job from Bernie Eccleston.
I think given the fact that you negged me, you have come to the correct assumption that I was being sarcastic.
"The word impossible says I'm Possible itself."
It was very rude of you to treat me like an idiot because I have a dream and something I want to work towards. I might only be a 14 year old girl but that doesn't mean I'm oblivious to the fact that becoming a medic or permanent part of the health team in Formula 1 is hard and almost very nearly impossible. I just know that would be my dream job and I think it's healthy to have dreams and ambitions. It isn't exactly like I've came out with "I want to become a fashion designer in Formula 1". You obviously aren't a fan of F1 and don't understand that the health team there is very important. Now go and bother other people. I was asking for help.
To be fair, fashion designer in F1 would probably open up more opportunity...
Don't quote me on this though.
