I think the advantages and disadvantages of being a doctor would vary depending upon the interests of the individual.

I agree, it completely depends upon the individual. it also depends on what type of doctor you are, where you work, and the conditions of the hospital where you work. Some doctors are on call all the time and some have normal hours and some work with surplus staff and get more time off than most. It completely depends.

There are so many different types of doctors that you really need to assess all their situations more individually. Do you know what type of doc you want to be yet? I havent decided, but I do know fairly what I'm getting into at least. are there any specific fields you would recommend yourself? hehe just curious. will check back later!
