Hey guys, How's it going? I'm Wafa and i'm from the U.S
I am pre-med and as of right now I am really interested in specializing in Cardiothoracic surgery or Neurosurgery. People often ask me why am i interested in cardiothoracic or neuro, and I often respond by saying..."I am not sure why, but hopefully when I go to med school I will be able to give you a better answer!" I am interested about going abroad, which includes Pakistan...(so if anyone who is from the U.S and is currently going to Med school in Pakistan (Lahore) I will really appreciate it if I get some feedback from you!) Honestly, I am more focused about what I am going to do with my life right now, then having to worry "where i am going to see my self in the next ten years" I am determined, positive and very sure that Medicine is the right field for me!

Any advice would be appreciated!!!! :happy:

Thanks!

Hello everyone!
I?ve just started my medical courses?1 year since I have started medical studies. I?ve never wanted to become a doctor but my mom wanted to become one so, this explains why I?m studying it. I joined the forum to share my experiences with you. It has only been 1 year since I have joined the medical college and my parents and even my neighbors see me as a doctor and they even ask for medical help from me. I tell them that I?m not a doctor yet?. I have to learn a lot. Yesterday a cousin of mine approached me to discuss about some medical problem. She was asking me if betadine is good for wound recovery?..oh oh!!!! Tell me how I am supposed to know about it. Has anyone been in such situations?
