Doctors.....is that THE profession?









Soon i will be leaving to Russia to do medicine. As i tell this to many people, people say 'WOW' or 'Congrats' . I can never undertand these reactions. Is being a doctor that great. Especially if your in Malaysia??? People think  being a doctor makes you rich. Let's look at case in Malaysia and use it as a case study. A medical officer in Malaysia earns around Rm6000( $2500). Each day, the doctor has to work around 18 hours and  times that with let say 25 days ( assuming he gets 5-6 days off) that will be a total of 450 hours. Now that means each hour a doctor makes Rm 14 ( $6) which is nothing great. So don't say that being a doctor is earning big bucks. That may be reffered to Specialists and Surgeons. Our social life wil also be shorten as we apparently have no time for that too. So how good is it to be a doctor????


To me, i wanna be a doctor not because of the meagre salary, or to have the word Dr infront of my name or to wear the white coat. I wanna be a doctor to coonect to people, to help them, to improve the quality of life and to make a difference in the healthcare system. That is why one should be a dcotor. I disaprove people who are forced by their parents to become doctors or those who wanna be a doc because of fame, wealth and so on.

I think i written enough and tmr i will post something that is fruitful and eye-opening
