I want to be doctor.
Specify neurologist.
For be a doctor I should like to heal sick people.
Becoming a doctor requires more training than most other jobs.
It usually teaks 11 years(4 years of college, 4 years of medical school, and 3 years working in a hospital)
A few medical schools let students go to college and medical school for 6 years combined instead of the usual 8 years. For some specialties, a doctor may have to work in a hospital for up to 8 years.
To become a doctor, I should study mostly math, English, and science when you go to college. And sometimes work in a hospital for nothing. It’s difficult to get into medical school.
Students spend most of the first 2 years of medical school in labs and classrooms. After medical school, doctors go to work in a hospital for a few years. They are called residents. To be a resident, you must take a test.
It costs a lot to become a doctor.
Of all jobs, doctors earn the most money. It also depends on how many hours you work and how good a doctor you are. Job opportunities for doctors are expected to be good, especially in rural areas. Future doctors are more likely to take jobs in group medical practices, clinics, and health networks.
It took me 30 minutes.
I’ll die studying but be worth.
The text is the best of the three that I read.
Good bye people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
