Answer #5

based on the first answer, I just wanted to say that a psychologist is not a doctor, it’s a person who’s earned their Ph.D or something equal to it in psychology. They have not earned a medical degree, and do not make anywhere near what a medical doctor (MD)would make. Psychiatrists (who are MD’s) deal with the same thing as psychologists do, however, they deal with the more medical part of the patient’s care (prescriptions, drugs, etc) and only give counseling or therapy if needed. Psychologists do the more therapeutic part.

I also am interested in becoming a doctor.I have found some specialties that I think would interest me personally, and I’ve also used this page as a guide to find them. If you find a general definition for a doctor and what they do might interest you, look them up to see what more specific things they do (if they perform surgery, are just physicians, treat a specific age or gender, etc.) these details are very helpful.

I don’t want to be a surgeon, so I chose specialties that don’t use surgery, unless they sub-specialize. (like pediatrics; it has physicians and then with a little more education if you want, you can be a pediatric surgeon)

I personally have narrowed my choices down to being a physician in:

anesthesiology (caring for patients before, during, and after surgery to ensure the most comfort for the patient [ie from pain, waking during surgery, things like that])

Gastroenterology (doctors dealing with your digestive track, they sometimes perform procedures, which are different from surgery, that help show the inside of a patient so they can better try to find problems and or treat a patient better)

Pediatrics (doctors dealing with newborns, children, teens, and young adults [ages 0-18] and anything that may effect them. Usually a primary care doctor.)

Psychiatrist (I’ve already pretty much explained this one)

Radiologist (Uses technology like X-Rays, mammograms, CT scans, MRI’s to help other doctors determine what could be wrong with a patient. Where I live, these guys make an average salary of 415,000)

Urology (Deals with problems in the urinary tract of both genders, including the bladder, male reproductive system [these guys are like obstetricians/gynecologists which deal with the female reproductive system] and they also deal with all the organs/muscles inside the penis)

I hope this helps explain a few things that may help you in your search for a specialty, but look up different stuff online (ie look up an oncologist [a doctor who deals with cancer and its affects). The Internet is an amazing source, also if you go to the doctor, ask them about their job and what they do and just different questions to learn about doctors in general.

Answer #14

Oncology - Cancer

Hematology - study of bood

There’s lots of types but I think if you want a challenge, Neurology would be a good field. There are a lot of people that have medical problems and can’t get a diagnosis because doctors don’t know what’s wrong with them. Usually, the last stop in a list of referrals, is a Neurologist. A lot of times, it’s a neurological problem. People are releived to, finally, learn what’s wrong with them.
