    Practicing medicine in:

    When they ask you what you will be in 5 years?

    The most elegant response is “I am a future doctor.”

    And you will hear «wow this is amazing»


    But the love and respect people have for doctors doesn't mean they don't believe in some weird misconceptions.

    1# No social life

    During my first year in med school, I was scared because I used to believe that choosing medicine is like choosing death.

    You say goodbye to your family, friends to move to the hell alone.

    Med school is the prison where I will spend your life studying.

    When I started studying I was surprised by the number of activities I can do in university:

    sports, music, joining organizations and associations.

    I do believe that being social is related to your personality.

    If you like to be alone you will be even in the middle of a dance party.

    2# Bad at romantic relationships

    Med students don't know how to express their feeling and even if they start in a relationship they quickly break up because they don't know how to make it work.

    Let me tell you something the medical field is all about relationships.

    We learn the skills to deal with patients, with doctors, and with all the medical staff and we also learn to be the leaders.

    You still believe we can’t run a romantic relationship successfully.

    3#old fashioned

    Med students don't know how to put a nice and stylish outfit.

    They don't have the good taste to follow fashion and they don’t have the time to be updated to new fashion trends.

    We go through a lot of difficulties and challenges every day.

    That’s why we choose simple and comfortable clothes.

    We are following the less is more trend.

    4#weak minded

    Like math, the synonym of intelligent is not part of med students' studies. Some tend to believe we are not intelligent; we are not good thinkers like engineers for example.
    We rely too much on memorizing.

    The truth is memorizing is the last step of our learning process before we have to understand the subject we are studying and this needs intelligence.

    Haters GONNA hate.

    They will find million of things to say to put you down.
