Could you be a doctor?

  1. Spinning off of the law school thread ... if I had it all to do over again, beginning with first year in college, I would take all my science pre-reqs, maybe do a journalism masters at Columbia or an MFA somewhere, then try to become a surgeon. I really think I could, but some here don't seem to think that it doesn't suit their specific intelligence.

    Damn, to be 22 again.

    I couldn't. I hated science in school. I'm not naive enough to think I'd have made it through that many science classes.

    My brother's getting an MD/PhD right now. No thanks. Money ain't everything in life.

    I wish someone had pushed me to be an anesthesiologist. That's a hell of a gig, huge money with somewhat limited (though very, very important) responsibilities.

    Heck I could be a doctor with all that sex in the on-call room.

    What? Doctors really don't have sex in the hospital with interns? Damn, that's what I get for basing my opinion on Grey's Anatomy.

    I have the stomach, but not the brains.

    My wife treats patients for a living. Journalism is a toy department compared.

    Doctor as in nationally-syndicated sex therapist? Absolutely.

    The real thing? Not a chance. My bedside manner would be atrocious.

    Besides, I've seen the damage done. I went to a school with a pretty demanding premed program. Every party I went to, there were at least three or four folks in a corner snorting coke or popping pills, and they always were the premed types. From your junior year of high school on, the path to doctorhood is fraught with almost unrelenting pressure and stress.

    I almost puke at the idea of doing surgery...so no thanks.

    For the last time, I'm sorry I was naked when I picked you up in Queens.

    Christ. It's been four years. Get over it.
