I want to study it because I think I will enjoy the content. Seems interesting. But when you actually graduate... why would anyone want to put themselves through that???!!!!

please give reasons and if you are a doctor now, do you like your job? Or do u hate it and wish you did something else? What would u have done instead?

I'm not a doctor nor would I want to become one, but I think some of the reasons might be that as a doctor, you can help other people and make a difference to people's lives. Knowing you've helped other people is a good feeling.

Because Asian parents dictate the career their children must follow in order to raise the perceived community status of the family and provide the parents with a comfortable financial retirement position in a developed western country.

For Asian parents, there are only a few career paths:
- Computer Science
- Finance
- Medicine
- Law

What do all these have in common? They are high-paying and are regarded as “good careers”. Anything else is not acceptable

Hence I am going into medicine (but I also want to go into medicine too, it’s not just my parents)

I'm a doctor. I love treating patients, interpreting investigations and doing procedures. But the negatives of working for the NHS vastly outweighs the positives of the job in my opinion.
