So lately, I've been a bit turned off by the nature of many premeds at my school and I guess everywhere else. No one cares about medicine as a career and a major life decision. It's all about "yeah, yeah, yeah, how do I get in?" But then when u ask why they want to be doctors, they spit out the typical: "I don't know," "I always have," "I like to help people," etc. And why are there so many premeds anyway? Are all these people really going to be doctors? Do all these people really want to be doctors? It causes me to question people's motives. Sure there will be a few that have solid reasons but certainly this isn't as many as those who declare themselves premed. It's funny cuz some people blatantly say: "My parents made me," or "MONEY," or "I have low self esteem and telling everyone I'm a doctor will give me the validation I need to feel better about myself." But are these good reasons? So yeah, I'm just wonderin, what are your motivations for becoming doctors?
