Not everyone has the same reason for becoming a doctor; some go into the field because of their love for the sciences, others love working with people, some go into it for the money, and others' choice to go into medicine is spurred by the death of a family member due to some disease which has no cure.

Soo....tell us, what was the reason you chose medicine? :nurse:

This will be a quick reply. I'm sure I will want to elaborate a bit more later, but for now, I chose medicine because I noticed that I'm a people person. I get a big satisfaction out of just helping someone feel better... I also love the health field cause I realize how dependent we all are on it. Having the knowledge that can someday help out my mom, my ciblings or even myself makes me feel a tad bit more secure. It's like having a gun inside the house; you just feel safer... lol.
Anyway, I hope everyone was able to understand my reason for wanting to become a Dr. I hope to hear some feedback or just some other reasons, soon!

Its just something that is really interesting. Learning about the way our body works.

There's so much fields if you get bored of one, go to the next.

Also you're learning about your own body, so something useful for yourself.

I want to be a doctor so that my parents love me.#sad

In reality I want to be a doctor because its one of those profession that is fullfilling not only because you make a lot of money, but at the end of the day you feel like you tried to make someone's life better.

1. To prove that it's not as hard as it looks

2. To make money, get rich, retire young only to become a business man, and live materialistically

3. To help people

4. Job security

5. Social status
I agree with number 2 alot, thats my goal as well.

mine's kind of a sob story. my mom went to do IMANA when the earthquake hit Pakistan and she came back and told me about this mother that she had met in northern Pakistan and how she had lost her daughter long before the earthquake...her daughter had her baby delivered by a british med volunteer - it was a man because women tend not to go to rural Pakistan - so when her husband found out he asked the mulvi's what to do and they told him to execute her for what she did was haraam. Now if the woman had used a midwife her chances of survival were slim to none... so i decided y not be a doctor and help out women like her?
we all die someday its what we did with that life that counts...
p.s. sorry for the life story but that's y i want to become a doctor.

If I understand you correctly, you want to be a doctor because you want to help women give birth who otherwise lose their babies since according to some idiot mulvis births supervised by male doctors who aren't Muslim are not allowed in Islam, right?

I really don't get that at all, especially since the mulvis were completely wrong, and the woman's husband was even more wrong to listen to them. It's people like that who lead everyone to believe Islam is such a backward religion, all thanks to the misinterpretation of some ignorant, uneducated power-hungry mulvis. Male doctors, Muslim or not, are definitely allowed to deliver babies in Islam.

The desire to help your fellow Muslim women though is still a very noble aspiration nonetheless, and very admirable indeed.

Lets keep this thread on topic. This isn't the place for a discussion about religion.

Everyone who hasn't responded to this thread yet, chime in! Why do you want to be a physician? #confused

cant resist posting in here=)
1)i've found myself enjoying biology of all natural sciences. 2)I've been instilled with this lil idea tht an individual's health is the most imp factor, which decides the course of his/her life, which inturn collectively affects the society, subsequently the nation, somehow. I feel its a field taken less seriously than it actually is. (not tht we dont have good drs, we have great drs!). I just want to bring more hope for the weak and empower them to be the best they can be!
cheerz:happy:

I think i ws in ma mum's womb when i wished to b a Doctor (lol)...
I ALWAYS believed i ws born to b one...

Medicine, all together is a package of sacrifices from you to your family and vice versa esp. for foreigners/expatriates...And i knew it ws goin to b tough, but i aint a loser..!!! Life has given me the tools necessary to succeed, & they will be utilized (Insha'Allah).

To me, the passion for medicine is a gift and a form of a blessing from Allah(SWT). And i'm glad that money was never an issue to pursue my career. Deep inside i knew i'd b an incomplete person if i hadnt gone for medicine..!!

In short, when i dig down the memory lane... i find way too many reasons, yet i'm clueless:)!!!
