Doctors practicing several highly paid specialties - such as radiology, orthopedics, cardiology, and anesthesiology - reported average earnings of more than $300,000 per year.

According to the journal Education for Health in Research shows that many doctors cited a sense of accomplishment as the career of a physician is fulfilling. No doubt to say that working as a doctor is a great distinction.

A driving passion to help patients and family, to be challenged, and to learn throughout the life. Maybe, for that you need to sacrifice your time and energy for the care of your patients, often forsaking the family and even self. The most important aspect of being a doctor is, it is simply who they are; not only what just they do.
