1. You’ll study the human body – inside and out
Are you fascinated by the complexity of the human skeleton? Are you excited to meet a human cadaver first-hand and say “hi”? Well, you’ll get to learn the name of every bone, their shapes and sizes by heart. This will also provide a great the chance to enact scenes from Hamlet while contemplating the nature of existence. Your medical studies will also get you closer to understanding the inner workings of the kidneys, lungs, the human brain, and every little cog that is essential for keeping the organism functioning like it should.
2. Transferable Skills with the inner satisfaction of treating and diagnosing Patients
Medical graduates are highly regarded in almost all walks of life. So if you decide to pursue other avenues you shouldn’t be in too much trouble. A medicine degree will develop your professionalism, time management, ability to work as part of a team, research skills…..the list goes on. Doctors do need excellent leadership and communication skills as well as a healthy dose of bedside manners. They are part of a team that needs to operate effectively because messing up costs lives. You need to address to your patients clearly and with empathy and also make sure you are on good terms with the nurses who are essential for the patient’s well-being.
3. You can study Medicine anywhere in the world!
The best thing about starting your Medical science degree is that you are not limited to your home country. There are plenty of study options all over the world. Everybody needs a good doctor. So, if you want, you can even move to the country where you studied and do what you love there.
4. You’ll have the latest technology at your fingertips
Governments and companies are investing heavily in medical technology, meaning you’ll always have the best tools to do your job with and no place for error. Take your pick from state-of-the-art prosthetics, 3D printed organs (and actual 3D printing with biomaterials), devices that analyze your vocal features to diagnose your health, wearable diagnosis sensors, food scanners that tell you what’s in your food, you name it.
5. You’ll never stop learning – and that’s a good thing!
You can never end up knowing everything during your medical career. Even the best doctors still need to stay in touch with new discoveries and procedures. So, you can rest assured you will never get bored. What’s more, during your study years, you’ll have your teachers and colleagues to learn from. Colleague feedback and teamwork is an essential part of a medical education, so you’ll never be on your own.
6. You can help people directly and make them happier
Most doctors would say that there is no greater joy than the one you feel when you manage to help a very sick patient or when you are part of a group of scientists who discover a new medicine for a certain disease. The ability to directly help the healing process is also a continuous challenge and sometimes it is not easy to cope with it. For this reason, your medical education will prepare you to handle the difficult moments and land on your feet in 99% of the cases.
7. You’ll have a great social status
Doctors are seen as a symbol of dignity, responsibility and service towards the community. Members of every local community are aware of the hard work and sacrifices that the medical professional goes through to achieve and maintain this job at an efficient level. Therefore, their positions and opinions relating to the welfare of the community are taken into serious consideration, as well as their example in behavior and moral standing.
