Why Become a Doctor?



You will most likely be asked multiple times throughout your medical career why you wanted to become a doctor. Beginning with your application to medical school, you will need to ponder and sort out this question. While there are several individual reasons to pursue a career in medicine, becoming a doctor is something you also need to have the motivation and commitment to pursue. When things get stressful or overwhelming, you can always remind yourself why you became a doctor.

Security
For starters, the medical field is stable and not affected by the fluctuating status of the economy. You will not need to worry about losing your job as some other professions are more easily put at risk during economic tough times. In addition to this, your financial stability will be secured with your salary and benefits. Your job will remain secure as the demand and need for doctor is always going to remain. Your years of dedication to medical school will be worth it, much like how Rachel Tobin Yale dedicated herself to her work and studies.


Honor
As a doctor, you are trusted with sensitive and private information. It is an honor to hold such responsibility. Your patients will look to you as a person they can truly share with and trust. With this position of great responsibility also comes power. As a doctor, others look up to you as a leader. This is true, especially within the health care community. Even outside of a work setting, doctors are respected in day-to-day public settings as well. Think about the heroic role a doctor can play in the case of an emergency in public. A doctor on the scene could save a life before an ambulance gets there.

Options
Once you’ve earned your degree, you can decide whether you would prefer to practice medicine with patients in a more office-like setting, or if you would like to do further research in the lab. Even after deciding, you can change your practices down the line and switch gears. The opportunities within the medical field are near endless. With technologies developing and new programs being established, you never know what you might expand your practice into.

No matter where you are on your journey towards a career in medicine, you will need to ask yourself a very important question. Why do you want to become a doctor? If your answers resonate with you, then the years of school and training will remain well worth the effort.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately.
