    If you get stressed easily then it probably isn't for you.

    Have you thought about psychiatry?

    Don't base your whole career off one quality! Look at medicine and alternative options and see what interests you most. Everyone will have something like that (stressed easily, not a very organized etc.).Tom

    If your "not sure" then it is probably not for you. Medicine is not for the faint-hearted it is a very stressful course

    i love everything about medicine like dissections and learning about it, but it seems there’s a lot to learn in little time, i find that a little stressful

    Mate you haven't even started it first get a feel for the course then judge a conclusion and act appropriately on it (e.g transfer to a different course)

    I think its normal to have doubts, its more worrying if you don't. Medicine is daunting and you're signing yourself up for a difficult 5 years. No one enjoys stress but you gain resilience doing medicine and you learn how to cope with it.

    I don't think that, in itself, would suggest that medicine "isn't for you".

    Yes but the job itself is most likely less stressful. I thought by medicine you meant being a Doctor on the ward (not uni) so I was suggesting something still in medicine, my bad sorry
