Re: How long does it usually take to get hired?

I'm curious about this too. I heard it could take a while for some to get hired. As I heard that depending on the area, the school you went to, and the type of degree you went for. Also, your grades come into consideration too I believe.

How many medical classes can we take per semester?

When going to a medical college, how many medical classes can I take in one semester? I want to take as many as possible, so that I can get through this schooling as fast as possible. Is it possible to take a bunch of courses in your first semester?

Should we wait for more testing before giving kids the vaccine?

The vaccine has been confirmed to be good for children, but people are still unsure on whether they want to get their kids vaccinated. I am for kids getting vaccinated, as I don't think it would cause any issues. But I know some people are asking for more research and testing before giving the vacci...

Re: What do you say to people who self diagnose themselves?

I tell people to not self treat though. If they think they know what is causing them issues, then they should take the issue to the doctors right away. Leaving the issue to wait and progress could result in worse problems persisting.

Re: Will we need just one booster shot or more?

I have a feeling we may need to get a booster shot every year or so. Right now, I feel like it may be one soon, and one more in 6 months. I heard rumors that this could become a yearly thing, kinda like getting a flu shot or a yearly checkup. I kinda see it coming.

How much money could a doctor make in his/her first year?

What is the general amount most doctors tend to make in their first year? Do they make a good amount, or is it lowered based on the years worked? Sorry if this sounds dumb, but I'm still kinda new to all of this and am asking as many questions as I can.

Do most doctors have assistants?

I know they have nurses on hand to help, but do doctors have their own assistants who maybe deal with phone calls, making appointments, and so on? I figure most of them have assistants or just people there to answer calls when needed. I suppose if it's a doctors office, they won't have assistants bu...

Re: Covid and the Holidays

The best suggestions I can give you, is to mask up, social distance and all the usual recommendations. If you have family who are unvaccinated, try not to go near them if possible, as they could be at risk of catching it.

Re: Do you get enough sleep?

I strive to get at least 6 hours of sleep, but I am aware you should get at least 8 to 9 hours of sleep. I try to sleep for 8, but often can't reach that for some reason. I don't have anything that would cause me to not get a full nights sleep.
