    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

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

    Of course! You got a problem?

    Becoming a doctor is a huge responsibility and a real challenge. Not anyone can deal with all difficulties during the studying and practice processes. Gaining a doctorate degree is far from easy and you have to be passionate and motivated enough in order to get in. If to talk about what should motivate a person to become a doctor, I think it's the possibility to help others (to save lives even!), better understand other people, gain new experience, skills and become a great and recognized specialist, as a result.
