From what you've written it looks like a degree in neuroscience would be more helpful.
Erm I'm sure I figured that out but... I figure that I can become a doctor and train in neurology and help underdeveloped nations sometime after I have done my training..
Neuroscience looks nice but I would like to be able to treat people in case my plans change in the future.
Thanks for your concern though!

My pleasure! Well you have to study medicine to become a psychiatrist; you seem quite set and intent on medicine, so give it a shot
Thanks for understanding Alex.. I think it's a great idea that you have given me! I would most definitely look further into neuropsychiatry but people on here have suggested to me that it's best I obtain a neuroscience degree but I would also like to be able to treat people legally in underdeveloped nations whenever my plans change down the line.
What specialism are you looking at if any?

Well you could always do research alongside clinical work, which would allow you to do research into new treatments and also help patients currently suffering at the same time.
Kinda like the best of both worlds if they feel that way.
I couldn't agree more with you Jonny..
I hate it when people TRY to make you not want to study medicine.

i dont know, but if you want to cure degenerative diseases shouldn't you become a medical researcher/scientist?
Correct me if i'm wrong, but i dont think doctors do those things??
Probably but I want to go through the medical route simply because I have a passion for it..
After that I'll see what I will do.. I can always take up another degree in the future.. I'll have my medical degree and training here to just back me up a little. But it's something I genuinely do want to do in case my mind changes in the future.. I can be quite indecisive..
THANKS FOR YOUR CONCERN THOUGH. It's much appreciated.
