Hello everyone. I have given my MBBS final examination 3weeks ago and am awaiting my results. My fingers are crossed!
I have reached a phase of life, where i have to make a life changing decision. and through this blog i would like advice from you all.
I am the first doctor in my family, and i need advice from as many doctors as possible.
i have to decide, rather i should use the term, choose, between appearing for the PG entrance exam or USMLE. i understand that struggle is present in both choices, but i do not know which will be better in the long run. the quality of life in America is better than that here. and to reach a stage where we have enough experience and earnings to lead an equilavent life here in India, might take longer. that might be a naive point of view.
However, apart from this problem, there is one more. i really really want to do surgery! but i am aware that there are no seats for surgery for international students in the states. so i do not know if i should give up my dream to become a surgeon for a better quality of life and working conditions. i do not know the status of a female surgeon here in india. so if i could get some feedbacks on that, it would be great. the way the patients think about a female surgeon, i have no clue about. but also i think that how good a doctor you become decides how many patients want to come to you and put their faith in you.
Any input and advice would be great help at this point. i want to decide for sure before my results are out, that is within 3 weeks. thank you very much!
