This is more a cultural question -- why do y'all think there are so many South Asians in pre medicine? It seems like they are flooding the hospitals.

They have a higher IQ distribution than many of the other races/ethnicities. I know you said it was a cultural question but those inept explanations won't do.

South Asians have this intrinsic desire to become doctors from the moment they are born.

Part of it comes from their parents and relatives who all think doctor is the best profession to be. The respect doctors get in the community is phenomenal and can make anyone jealous.

And I guess part of it comes from the genes. We are homozygous for the dominant allele of the doctor gene...DDs

hey, if a robot can reduce human suffering and cure diseases, i really don't care where it comes from. why should race or nationality matter as long as the person can perform? maybe south asians just want it more? i know personally, my parents never suggested medicine or even brought it up in conversation. and i'm assuming that you're assuming that stereotype of some cultural push into medicine. im simply using my interests and passions to pursue a career in which i think i'll be happy.

I - myself - hail from a South Asian family. I would attribute it to the fact that you make good amount of money, help people, and have a nice status among the community. I'm just being honest.

Especially in this economy, a stable career like medicine is especially nice if you want to score with the aunties.
