PhD to MedicineWatch
I'm a current master's student, applying for a (funded) PhDs in an area of medical research. I really enjoy what I do, but after working alongside clinicians, I have an aspiration to go to medical school after my PhD. It's obviously a huge sacrifice, and long commitment to do both a PhD and try and go to medical school. How would medicine admissions view this decision?
Everyone thinks it's a crazy idea, as it will be such a long time before I start earning money. But, I am very driven, and would rather do the things I want to do, than stick with something just because it is better paid
What are your thoughts?
sorry for bombarding you with all these questions
The first point is obviously the most significant though. 4 years is a long time to be doing something you don't want to do.
