I have many friends who are Doctors, both female and male. I understand the struggles and hurdles and hard work. Most of them have student loans to pay back with high payments. You have to love your career to work hard at it and love to help others. I have an excellent Doctor who cares and makes sure his patients get the best care. He is not out for the money, he just likes to serve other people in a good way. His struggle was getting thru school. Hard part time jobs, studying, training, and so on. The hurdles that I heard from friends as Doctors are getting thru the exams and tests. It does not stop there, they still have to keep on top of the latest medical techniques and medications as well as other facilities that can give you what he can't. Always learning.
