Price for becoming a doctor money wise.

Money wise how much a doctor lags behind his friends who chose other than or could not pursue medicine. This question is asked by doctors worldwide. Though I along with many Indians have been fortunate to have become doctors with hardly any money spent as the Government of India and our state governments bear the cost. But in rest of the world and in private medical colleges this is not the case. The tuition fee and the capitation fees are very high.

We all know this angle. The medicine study is very costly. But what are the outcomes? Asav Patel an ophthalmologist from India discusses the cost of becoming a doctor in terms of money.

  1. Are we at a better situation when we start earning 10 years after our friends start earning?
  2. Did they have been blessed in disguise for not gaining entry in to the medical profession?

Well I certainly do not believe in such a way. I on one hand accept that the cost is huge, but I believe certainly that we are at the best place possible.

As Morpheus in Matrix says

You are not here to make choices, you are here to understand why you have made them

We have already made the choice to become doctors. We need not worry about why it took us so much time. We have to find out what was the divine force wanted us to achieve by becoming doctors.

In a way we are the chosen ones.

Wealth one can build being in any profession. take the example of Dr. Mani. This Cardiothoracic surgeon from Madras India is a big internet entrepreneur. With the money raise from his internet marketing he is financing Children Heart  Foundation that helps in funding surgery in children with Congenital Heart Diseases.

Is not that great?
