    If I study 15-18 hours and avoid any other activities[excluding toilet-bathing, eating] with 5-6 hr. sleep and cut the social contact, will I get schizophrenia.

    How to excel in medical field?

    Oh yes, absolutely, why not? I think you might be able to catch the disease quicker if you study 23-24 hours a day instead.

    For starters, as a medical student, you could start learning about schizophrenia.

    No, Sounds like a great way to be depressed AND a total geek at the same time, though. Be on the look out for noogies, swirlies, dead legs, book slaps, and stealing of lunch money as well. :)

    This is all in jest. Not serious.

    I have a feeling gogotutu might be ESL and have a genuine concern regarding stress load of study, reduced sleep rate, etc, and the potential onset of Schizophrenia? Or maybe I've just had too much Absinthe to drink and I'm feeling particularly charitable.

    Honestly say; I am very poor in study, English grammar and social contact. Failed recently twice in MBBS 2nd professional exams. And next exam will be 2 month later but have no planning, just wasting time and have no interest.

    You should probably seek professional advice regarding your lack of planning and no interest, perhaps a school official, counselor, or your own psychiatrist if you are worried you are ill.

    Regarding the list of relatively famous people you linked I might speculate:
    1. A lot of people with prodromal schizophrenia may gravitate to creative endeavors.
    2. This is still a tiny percentage of all the hard working famous/semi-famous people out there.
    Therefore I wouldn't worry about schizophrenia too much.
