    After hearing your story , I couldn't love your philosophy towards life more. Being positive, experiencing everything and loving your own career are things you teach me in this video clip. Though I am not a doctor, I think your suggestions are suitable for every job. Thanks for sharing your life with us. Looking forward to watching your next video!

      Hope everyone is have a good day just want you all to know Jesus loves you ❤️ you are never alone even when you feel lonely. Jesus is amazing John 3:16 “ For God so loved the world that he sent his one and only son that whoever shall believe in him shall not perish but have eternal life” I you do believe it’s best to find a local church that believes Jesus as Lord and has died for our sins and rose again and now sits at the right hand of the throne and attend it and also repent meaning turn away from your sins and confess them to Jesus sounds hard but God will make a way. Also read the Bible and talk to Jesus start by saying abba father... of course we’re not going to be perfect but we believe in the one who is perfect

          I'm 27 and just applying to a D.O. Early acceptance program this year, will matriculate by 28. You make me feel old Dr. Mike. Any advise on how to handle the burnout I'm getting trying to keep up with these kids?

            I wanna get into med school (it's called MBBS where I live) because I wanna find out more about pharmacology, immunology, anything that can align with my interest of working towards finding a cure for HIV, Rabies, AIDS, etc that millions are suffering from right now. And more interestingly, how to fight against superbugs with the help of bacteriophages! Study bacteriophages.. Also wonder if there are virus-phages maybe? That would be awesome though..

            And I believe that these are good reasons to be a doctor.!

                              The only person who will stop you from achieving your dreams is you. Remind yourself that you can do it. Be passionate about it and work hard.

                                I want to be a doctor but when I think about the time it takes to complete I get really terrified. Is there any way to comlete the programmes faster than their real duration by hardwork?

                                                I suddenly feel so blessed being able to go from high school to med school coz the UK doesn't require undergrad - that goes to say the admission tests were not great and weren't something you can prepare for...

But I am worried about the schooling because I have an IEP for my learning disability that I got from this neurological disease that I have no idea how to spell. Anyways I want to pursue the field of medicine, I just don’t know if any schools would except me.

I love medical studies but I also love law and that’s why I’m doing law school. The journey is long ahead of me, but we can definitely learn from each other and I appreciate your videos.

                                                            I have always wanted to be an animator,

                                                            but i couldn't say that out loud
                                                            as didn't wanted to be a already failed child.
                                                            could not see where this road would take me,

                                                            the road may be tough
                                                            but it will lead you to heaven, as several others have reached '
                                                            this is when i became lost
                                                            I choose the road most taken and that made all the difference.
                                                            Now, i may be earning right but my heart isn't.

                                                                I’m pretty young, (an 8th grader) but I’ve had my mind set on the field of medicine my whole life. I don’t really know if becoming some sort of doctor is what I will stick to once the time comes that I need to have my career set in stone. I’ve always been interested in things like the human body, how it works, and why certain things happen, but I always hear from the people around me, “you know the process to becoming a doctor is hard right? But I know you can manage that”. Now, whenever the topic of, “What do you want to be when you grow up,” comes into the conversation, all of my friends’ first reaction is “oh yeah your going to be a doctor I just know you are”. (No I am not exaggerating this) It feels as if my love for this field has turned into a title that has been given to me just by simply studying it on my free time. The more I look into the process, the schooling, the time needed to become a doctor or something similar, I get excited not gonna lie, but there are the people that expect that of me. What I mean is that because I am one of those people that do well in school, they always tell me that they *know* I am going to achieve this big goal in my life. I don’t know why but now it just feels like another expectation I have to live up to. This sounds pretty dumb and I know probably no one is reading this but, I don’t think I have the ability to live up to these visions/ideas people have of me. Sorry for ranting I’m just another kid that loves watching Mike’s videos, I’ll take my leave now.

I recently started thinking about becoming a doctor and I’m in my sophomore year of college and the more I share my opinion on being a doctor the more people start thinking I will be one and then what if I don’t, I’ll have to face a bunch of people and give answers so it’s like an added pressure. I’d just say that don’t think about people at all and brush people’s opinions aside. At the end of the day it just matters what you wanna do and how it makes you feel

You don't have teachers feeding you every bit of information. What I mean by that is, you are NOT supposed to understand everything just from the lecture. That means two things; First, don't be discouraged because you don't understand it, it's normal. Second, work towards understanding it. Ask the other students, look it up online, go to the library, and if nothing else helps, ask the lecturer or his assistants. If you immediately give up and then look for paid private lessons as first option, that's lazy and university probably isn't for you then...

It took a while to decide but I finally decided to take the NP route. I would love to hear your take on NP culture where I know there’s a lot of stigma out there regarding NPs having their own practice and are not overlook my physicians.
