How to Become a Doctor Guide

How to Become a Doctor Guide

We have a lot of students at the very beginning of their career journeys asking themselves the question – do I really want to become a doctor?  So we have created a short guide for students to help them understand a little bit more about what it is like to be a doctor to get them started.  The main questions that we have answered so far include: 

How long does it take to become a doctor?

What do doctors do?

Is it hard to become a doctor?

How can I stand-out as an applicant?

Is it expensive to become a doctor?

How do I apply to medical school?

How can I get work and volunteering experience?

What is it like at medical school?

You can read the answers to these questions by accessing the guide at this link:


If there are any more questions that you think we should add to this list and answer, please post them in the comments section below.  Thank you for your contribution!
