    This is just for interest/keeeping my mind open. If I decided that after all I did not want to become a doctor or medical scientist, would it be possible to do another career. For example could I go into the city like other graduates, or would I be looked upon as someone who should really be a Dr? It ought to be possible - is it really fair to decide the reat of your life at 17?
    Also would I be at any disadvantage starting 3 years later, though having another degree as well. Like I said just for interest. Btw, I am aware of thing within the medical umberalla - like medico-legal work, medico-politics and phama company posts - this is outside of that compleatly - city or some such thing.
    Btw, may not be the best place for it, but how would a graduate in banking compare to a junior Dr in terms of money/hours/secuirty/promotion prospects/travel oppertunities etc.
    Forever grateful to those who reply

    I think a lot of jobs (in many fields) just specify that you have a degree - they aren't that fussed about what it is. They may even look more favourably on a medical degree as its really hard work, so you're obv a hard worker! A job in banking etc, particularly in london, would earn a lot more money than a junior doc (but prob be about 10 times more boring)! :rolleyes:
