I have decided to post again here because I cant find a mod to move it :(
Hey everyone,

I have lately been thinking about a career in medicine even though i am a first year PhD student. How many of you have done your PhD and then gone into medicine? I have kind of got my heart set on it and have done all the resaerch about the finances/places to live etc. The thing is I feel like I would be letting down the people who are funding my studies and my supervisor if I persue this. Has anyone else found it this difficult to choose a career?

I know my parents will disown me if I do choose medicine but I really really want to go for it as I dont thing im cut out to be a researcher sad.gif

Thanks in advance,

Bex (Formally Kami22 but the forum lost my login details :S)

I am also planning to get into Medical School after PhD.

You can concentrate on your PhD studies now, then think about medical school in your final year of PhD.

I know many medical doctors who have PhD. They are both good medical doctors and good medical researchers.

Hope this may help.

You have to choose for yourself what you would like to do. I did my medicine, but later did my PhD and quit medicine and concentrate only on research as I found it more interesting. Think over both fields. Some people do both succesfully.
