I assume there's a few engineering students on here, so I'm actuaIIy curious. Do you guys actually think your degree is difficult or are you at the stage where you realize anyone could do it?
Fine, I'll take your bait.
>be med student
>just study a book by heart
>study another book
Proove me wrong, but from what I saw this is all med students do. Buy a book, learn the shit of it word-by-word and then go take an exam. All this for 6 years.
So the hardest part I see is having enough patience/a good memory.
And I have neither of them
this is typical bait
Im med student, my dad is MD and I think meds deserve respect only because their job is stressfull thats all. Diagnosis is only following the algorithm scheme you have to remember.
Tbh I went for medicine only because I feel an urge to help people (probably because inside I need help too). All you have to do is memorise stuff, I respect a lot ChemE, NuclearE and EE students.
Not trying to be edgy, but the blood and guts are exciting. I'm actually an emt, I've seen some shit. You ever shove a tube down a person's trachea and then suction blood out of the tube?
Or break their ribs doing cpr?
It's exciting work, and normies call you "heros" and shit. Plus money is pretty good, especially in America where Healthcare is ridiculously overpriced.
I'm not really into gore, it hurts to look at. For some reason I always imagine the pain that I would feel if it happened to me. Sounds like fun but I prefer dealing with instruments over people.
