This morning I awoke and went to my grandmother’s doctor box. She had been gone for five days, and I knew there was something wrong. She was fine when I visited her but now she doesn’t even remember what time of day we went to see her. When I ask her at what time of the day she was visiting her doctor she says “I don’t recall.”
Five days is a long period for anyone to miss work. If your doctor can’t make you go in on the first day because of an emergency, you’ll miss valuable time working with him or her. The first thing I did when I became nurse practitioners was to change from being an attending physician to working at a specialty level. While he had to attend more schooling and receive special training, it was more in line with my job and gave me more flexibility. He also had medicine but was hesitant to go to an operating room.
She was told by her doctor that she should not return to work. Within hours of her accident, she was rushed to surgery. Within 24 hours she passed away. The majority of the medical school faculty at the medical school are physicians in their respective areas of expertise.
Some doctors are not able to seamlessly change from medical school to becoming a general practitioner, surgeon, or surgeon. Like not every car driver has the mental capacity to drive while intoxicated and not all doctors have the ability to recognize and treat the symptoms of a stroke promptly after the initial onset. This is why I believe that it is essential for doctors to specialize in an area of medicine that is closely linked to the field of medicine they want to practice. For example for a doctor who wants to become a cardiologist, he must be interested in the field of cardiovascular issues.
Some have suggested that doctors might opt to focus on less exciting aspects in medicine. Perhaps a doctorate program focused on pediatricians or a less exciting field of medicine such as radiology or surgical technology would be beneficial to the doctor. While I believe doctors should concentrate their studies on a particular area of medicine, this is not to say that they cannot have interest in other areas. A doctor may choose to specialize in another field of medicine.
Certain doctoral programs will require that doctors complete either an internship or a residency prior to completing the doctorate program. A residency lasts for five years, and it takes around two years to complete. Through the course of the internship, doctors will acquire more experience in the clinical setting to be prepared for the doctoral dissertation, which will be required following completion of the doctorate program.
A pharmacy degree is one of the most sought-after doctorates. Although this doctorate does not permit the doctor to prescribe pharmaceutical products, it allows the doctor to conduct research and assist pharmacists in filling out the appropriate forms required for prescriptions of these products. Doctors with a degree in pharmacy are often involved in research and teaching. While a degree in Pharmacy does not make a doctor a patent scientist but it can help when they want to.
There are a myriad of options available when selecting a field of medicine. Many doctors opt to practice medicine for a couple of years and finally decide to become a doctor. Others choose to pursue a doctorate because they are confident about a higher academic commitment. Whatever the reason doctors are generally satisfied with their decision to increase their knowledge and enhance their career. There are many rewarding areas of medicine to choose from and doctors can find their niche in the medical field. Read more about Stroke here.
