Are you going into medicine because your parent(s) is a doctor? I hate it when people tell me I'm doing it to be like my dad, who's an ER physician. I honestly can't stand the ER and would never want to go into that field (sorry, Dad). But having his physican friends definitely did help in determining what exactly I was going into (pediatric oncology). I shouldn't complain, the lifestyle isn't so bad... except the fact that I hardly see my dad and spend 80% of the time with my mom. Do you all get that "you wanna be a doc cause your dad is a doc?"
