A doctor in the operating room

Doctors are regarded with such great esteem yet at the same time disdained because they tend to give off the vibe of “super humans”. In all truth however, doctors are some of the humblest and hardworking people around. The question of why doctors earn so much money is one that has sparked so much controversy. Some people argue that because doctors claim to take the role of servants, they should forfeit the money for service. This is an interesting way to look at the matter. Below is an in-depth analysis of the life’s and times of a doctor, it seeks to explain the income not to justify it.

Medical school is a trying time for anyone. Regardless of whether your GPA score is 4 or whether you got accepted from the waiting list, the experience of medical school is unique. The first few years are spent understanding human anatomy from one on one interaction with a cadaver. A dead human non-the less! This, in itself is stress enough. From late nights to burn outs, you have to keep in touch with lab work, homework and presentations.

Just when you think, you have mastered enough courage to build a relationship with a dead human, you move to the actual clinical aspect of medicine which includes one on one interaction with patients. The one lesson any doctor will tell you they have had to learn the hard way, is that of “healthy detachment”.
