I can't decide between a medicine career or an international business career?

I can't decide between a medicine career or an international business career? Topic: I can't decide between a medicine career or an international business career?

Question: I just finished my first year in highschool and i've gotten a pretty good mark at 89. I'm hardworking, smart and don't mind doing "extra homework". I'm having a bit of a life dilemma, since i was 5 i've always wanted to be a doctor, but now i'm second thinking and getting quite overwhelmed on how long it'll take to study for it. And i'm also developing a new interest into International business. I started second thinking after i realized that im developing love for traveling, which doctors rarely do. I'm quite multilingual by knowing, swedish, english, arabic and french. And i love traveling and helping people. So basically, my question is that is there a career that combines medicine and business, such as a project manager for some kind of medicine research? I'm quite confused, i like to plan ahead, and calculate. I've thought of getting a master in University of medicine and then going for business somehow? I'm looking for answers! And i'm only thinking of entering a University, not college. I don't think it's too early for me to plan ahead of my future, as many might think. Help?

Good you are thinking about it so early, but of course, you may find a thrid option, so keep open to that. Here's an idea from Dr. Phil: When making a decision that seems like a toss-up, love the first idea for a week, then love the second idea for a week. During the first week (or two or even a month in your case with lots of time), learn everything you can about that career. Talk to doctors about how they came to decide to be doctors. Then, during the second time frame, explore that subject and have interviews with people in that career. You may get some ideas from them about combining your two interests. But, bottom line: You gotta love what you decide on and love your decision once you make it.

Hopefully you will find it helpful.

All of those majors can result in a positive profession if you're well at them. And you can't get well at whatever you don't like. So prefer whatever that you just uncover intriguing and fascinating. If you favor math, opt for Finance or Economics. If you're prepared, opt for Accounting. If you love to speak to humans, Management. If you favor psychology, do Marketing. If you're a contemporary immigrant, and prefer handling your dwelling nation, do International. PS There aren't any "positive and completed" humans on Y!A, they've a lot higher methods to entertain themselves.

There are definately programs which combine health and business. There are actually degrees out there, such as administrative nursing, which combines both. But you are so young. Don't worry about it now. When you get to college remember that you do not need to have a biology major to be a doctor. The second most popular major is actually English, for premed students. Best way to find out about jobs are career offices at various colleges. Give them a call, they are very helpful.

think of what you will be enjoying the most studying and doing for a living... which one do you have a passion for most... go to a hospital and to some type of business Mentor and see for yourself what it is really like...

Hi, I'm a medical student. First, there's you. Are you right for medicine? You have to be able to get along with EVERYBODY! I'm very serious about this. You've got to be able to look at and speak to a man who you think has been hurting his kids, whilst you're waiting for the results of the test to come back to prove it. You've got to be able to get along with colleague that you REALLY don't like, just so that you can get a bed for your patient, or get them on a study that might ease their pain. You've got to get along with patient's that disrespect you, punch and spit at you at times, and at other times, worship you, think you're their Saviour and the sweetest guy in the world. Don't be put off by any of that, the rewards are far beyond the pain and nowhere else do you get total strangers telling you whole life stories and private details that they'd never even tell their spouses, or mothers? Then of course their's the education, and it ain't short! After Primary and Secondary level education you need to go to university and medical school for anywhere from 3 year to 7 years depending where you live and study. After than is you basic medical post graduate training, commonly called an internship. This lasts from 1 to 3 years again, then you do the specialty training (ie: surgeon, ENT, cardiac, psych etc., family practice, GP) which is 2-12 years again, depending on where in the world it's done. A long haul, but if you're the type of person who can handle stress and still get along with everyone, preferably with a (real) smile, then go for it! It's second to none! --- I chose this career because I was sick of not making anyone's life better at my old job, except the companies. So I applied and got in, I really liked the part-time paramedic work I had been doing and liked the idea of a fast paced job. I want to do emergency medicine and/or pre-hospital care (at the scene.)
