How to become a Doctor in India?Why would you want to be?
I wanted to write this for a long time.I started in April because that’s when we start with the #AtoZ daily challenges.I may or may not write 26 posts.I may or may not be alphabetical.What I will be is consistent.
I will be persistent and I will tell you the truth.
At least about the truth I know.While many readers on y blog have a primary profession.I invite all of you to read my posts, share them with young people at the threshold of choosing careers.I also ask you to think about sitting for the Pre-medical entrance exams after one year of studies and getting a first-hand experience.You have nothing to lose.Also, you will gain insight into why Doctors sometimes seem unapproachable and arrogant.
If you clear the premeds maybe you could take up being a doctor as a second profession?I strongly suggest every family should at least have one MBBS graduate to help in living the healthiest life and also to be able to judge the reality of healthcare in India today.While I will tell the truth, I will always try to be optimistic, because as a Doctor that’s my primary duty.
To give Hope!
All throughout this month, I will tell you about the human qualities, the subjects, the colleges and the exact situation of medical education in India
What is the first step of becoming a Doctor in India?
The Human part: Attitude
An attitude of learning goes a long way of succeeding in life.In whatever you do you can always learn more.As a Doctor, you will be a lifelong student.Your biggest teacher will, in fact, be your patient.But you have to accept that you will not have any control over life or death.Doctor’s are not Gods.They can’t be Gods and you should not play God.The simple truth is life and death are predestined.Your work in this world is to try to make a difference.
Then if you don’t know anything and if things may or may not work.Whats the use?
What is the second step of becoming a Doctor in India?
The Subject: Biochemistry
This is a subject you will learn in the first year.It will appear very cut and dry.But is exceedingly important.This subject will teach you all about how your body digests metabolize and utilize food.It is a study of the chemical and physio-chemical processes and substances inside the human body. It teaches the chemistry of carbohydrates, amino acids, fatty acids, nucleic acids, and vitamins.There are practical classes and strong emphasis is laid on correlations of clinical cases and diagnostic parameters.
The Question: Is Biochemistry taught separately as a graduation subject in the general streams?
Yes, it is.This is a good branch of science to gain knowledge in as the postgraduation courses are interesting too and have a lot of scopes if training taken in a good college.The scope of employment is good too.I will be updating the colleges and employment opportunities in these fields after full research is completed.
