    What is your motivation in becoming a doctor?

    Hi,

    I was just wondering what are some of your motivation in becoming doctors. You will spend 4 years in medical school plus a minimum of 3 years doing residency working close to 130 hour work weeks. You will probably never see your family during that time.

    What is your real motivation? I have heard so many. I heard helping people, but that is too broad. You can work for the peace crops and help people. Some peopel tell me money, but if you take a look an entrepreneur makes a lot more money than a doctor and if he ever takes his company public, he'll make much more.

    Please share with me, what is your true motivation for becoming a doctor?

    Thanks

    motivation

    I have to admit stability, respect, status, and power don't really enter into it for me. But i didn't objectively decide to be a doctor. The Reader's Digest version is this: I love medicine, I love people, and I love helping people. But the bottom line is, a doctor is WHO i am. Its not WHAT i am until i graduate, but it is in every part of me. I would say I'm called too.

    Lol! Why do I suspect you are not sure how to write your personal statement about the reason why you wanted to become a doctor? Why do I also suspect that you posed this question to the forum in order gauge the response of others so that you could have an idea as to how to write yours?

    You're calling out the motivation of a seven year-old post?
