Medicine vs. NatSci watch

    • Thread Starter

    For the past year or so, I've been focused on getting into a Medicine course at a top uni (of my own will!), with some reservations throughout. I've invested a lot of time into a medicine-related future, attending a variety of lectures and masterclasses relating to medicine, and starting a Physiology MOOC, as well as (currently doing) an EPQ relating to Music Therapy. However, with I'm beginning to feel a bit intimidated by the work and the commitment required for medicine - the appeal of helping others out and making a real difference to other's lives still holds true for me, but I'm beginning to wonder if I want to do that at the cost of my own social life. So, the question is, how much work is a medicine undergrad and postgrad course really? I've always had an interest in science, so I'm wondering if I should go into NatSci instead. What would the advantages and disadvantages of both be?
