Are you considering choosing medicine as a profession? - Take note if this

Studying medicine comes with a certain expectation to work harder on average than most other students. There are generally more contact hours than other subjects (this year I have a 9-5 day every Friday) with practicals and lectures taking up a great deal of time. Of course it’s not just the contact hours when you are working: lecture notes need to be read over, essays have to be written, practicals should be prepared for and keeping on top of it all can be a challenge. This is especially the case as your work load will vary from week to week, sometimes being set a great deal of work and sometimes having a whole week with very little to do. Therefore it’s important to be flexible with how you work and appreciate that sometimes you will have to put in a long stint of work in order to have the time off when you need it. There’s also a reasonable amount of pressure on to pass exam.

What happens when they make mistakes

If it's an inexperienced doctor this can have serious ramifications on his confidence and it did be a test of his mettle. If he comes out, he will learn his lesson and most likely make no more mistakes. For an experienced doctor, he will understand that it happens and will modify his methodology to make sure it doesn't repeat.

If it's gross negligence the doctor can be tried criminally or lose his licence. He will also have a loss of name and his career might go seriously downhill.
