Actually, Paramedics go through more ongoing training than doctors do. Altogether 3 years at a community college + countless con ed hours to keep their certification.
I would've loved to had gone to med school, so I'm not hating on doctors lol. I just know that they shouldn't be complaining.
Doctors also have to renew licience and certifications. The education never really stops.
If you really would love to go to med school, you should do it.
I wish sad one of my biggest dreams. I'm a "field doctor". Could never afford to put myself through med school, my grades were never really stellar.
...my, the things I would go back and change given the chance.
I don't have the money, most people don't. They just really want it so they get as much aid and scholarships as they can and rack up a ton of debt.
There is always DO schools. They also like to see an upward swing.
Have you taken the premed courses? All these math and sciences are worth a lot of credit and should pull up your gpa.
I had wanted to join the Navy as a combat corpsman and have college and med school completely paid for. That was the best shot I had.
I think most of the military docs go to PCOM where the avg gpa is 3.45, science gpa 3.38, MCAT 27. They also offer a lot of aid. DOs and MDs are the same these days anyway.
