Which Medical Career Suits You?
You have a lot of different choices when selecting a future in medicine. You could be a doctor, a researcher, or a nurse. But which one suits you best. Well, to find out, let’s have a look at the traits of each, and we’ll discover which fits you the most.
Becoming A Doctor
If you want to be a doctor, you’ll need to exceed academic expectations and work well under severe amounts of stress. You also need to be prepared for the responsibility that will be in your hands every day. You will, quite literally, be changing someone’s life, for better or worse. As well as this, you do have excellent earning potential, and most of your work will be based on medical procedures. As such, you don’t need to worry about seeing patients every day.
Becoming A Researcher
Researchers don’t operate in hospitals or clinics. Instead, they work behind the scenes, testing a new medicine and developing medical procedures. It’s a great choice if you love medicine but aren’t as interested in working with people. Instead, honing medical procedures will be your top priority, and patient care falls to the bottom of the list.
Becoming A Nurse
Last but not least, you can consider becoming a nurse. As a nurse, much of your time will be spent with patients, and you won’t have to jump through as many hoops as fully trained doctors. While you will have some responsibility ultimately whether a patient lives or dies will be based on the treatment plan of the doctor. You will simply be completing their plan to the best of your ability. You can find out more in the following infographic.
