Hey :)
It's beautiful to find such a community. I would really appreciate some advice. I'm 30yo, with a dental degree, a MSc and a PhD. Currently I will be in the 5th year of medicine (My phd was in parallel with medical school, you can't imagine what I went through). So here's my problem. I kinda liked dentistry but not passionately. Medicine was my truest desire and that's why I chased it. But I feel troubled about my age. Could it pose a threat to my career? Should I be discouraged for a surgical specialty? My all time dream was to be a neurosurgeon (or an anaesthesiologist). Is this hopeless for my age?

thanks to anyone who read my text
