    Don't ask why..

    Just could you possibly give me as many downsides as possible to being a med student/ doctor.

    Much appreciated.

    You will probably make more stupidposts in this forum

    You deal with people

    If you are this stupid and annoying you will piss off your paitents


    You are probably someone who doesnt know if they even want to do medicine and wants to pick a good subject out of the hat in order to gain prestige because you want to have something on this year's UCAS.

    Did I mention that you will make more stupid posts on this forum ? :afro:

    I wouldn't say the following applies to everyone, but these would be reasons why I would not study medicine :rolleyes:

    ~ Very competitive
    ~ Hard Work
    ~ Need to be very smart
    ~ Would have a very little social life
    ~ Have to be able to cope under pressure
    ~ Takes a long time to complete degree and training
    ~ If you do become a doctor after degree then it would be depressing to have a patient not survive after you did everything in your power to help them

    Very small people will get angry at the lack of differentiation between the honorific Dr. and doctoral studies Dr.

    If your keen, watch junior doctors on repeat on Wednesdays at 8 at the moment. Or just do a quick google. It's been discussed at length many, many times.

    Doctors would be nothing without Chemists, Biologists, Biochemists, (and in a way Physicists/engineers ) - so pretty much scientists doing the research enable to allow doctors to do their work. Mind you i'm not saying doctors are bad, but what all of the people listed above do are the people who are going to end up curing diseases like AIDS and cancer. Doctors are only diagnosticians or glorified mechanics in my opinion :/

    - If you're a female, you train for 7 years so if start studying, after a-levels you'll be 23 when you're done studying, but then you have F1, F2 years, then training for what you want to specialize in ( still alot of studying)
    I'm curious, did you forget to add on a bit at the end of the point, or have I missed a memo that says men get automatic acceleration?

    Hard to apply into, but you could go for Biomedical Sciences then transfer
    Patronised when you're a junior doctor
    Long course

    Doesn't it hurt having your head stuck so far up your a***? Good luck with being a doctor. You, my friend, are a clear representation of what doctors are like nowadays: horrible, nasty, and in it for the money.
