I ve graduated in IT field,but i dont like to waste my whole life in programming,i ve always loved to become a doctor,but at that time i choosed IT cuz of different reason,so i dont know if its late to start studying medicine,because it lasts for 6 years + 3 years specialisation,cuz i would like to become a doctor specialist
You might want to ask this question on a board for medical professionals. But who knows, maybe there is a former doctor turned programmer here who can give you some insight?
i ve posted it in here,because i saw someone from medicine switched his carieer to programming,so i hoped there can be situation where doctor became programmer,or opposite,but i couldnt comment on that post,dont knw why
FCC is for people transitioning into programming, not transitioning into medicine. Wrong forum.
When I was at school (studying computer science), I had a friend who was graduating the same year as me who was planning on going on to be a medical dr. He was young so he was not concerned about a 4 year B.Sc. followed by 4-5 years more of study.
I often think that people with multiple majors which include CS make very interesting individuals who make very interesting contributions to both fields. (There’s a thing called bio-medical engineering that is basically a combo of software/robotics/medicine).
Try to call up the admissions/registrar offices at your local schools. Ask them if you are too old, see what they say. (I bet they won’t think so though).
All the best to you btw. I hope you make it happen.
Hi Sarah! I have graduated in medicine couple of years ago (and am checking alternatives to my field of work at the moment, that’s another story though). We are probably not in the same country, but at my university, there were quite a lot of people who started studiying at 27.
Well, it’s lots of work, but I guess you already know that. Also, depending on where you work, working as a doctor is not nearly as fulfilling as it might seem from outside… it is lots of paperwork and doing things which seem to help zero percent - it could still feel like wasting your life…Well, I don’t mean to discourage you - sometimes I look with a little envy to my IT friends with their free nights and free weekends and nice job conditions…
Surely you’ll make a good decision.
