Becoming a doctor isn’t an easy option – it takes years of studying and hard work. Patients must be able to trust doctors with their lives and health. Thus, to become a good doctor one needs a strong passion for improving people’s lives and the determination to reach the highest standards.
Doctors often work as part of a team of professional medical and non-medical staff, referring patients to other healthcare professionals including nurses, radiographers, pharmacists and physiotherapists. A wide range of specialities allows working either in a hospital as a specialist doctor or surgeon, or being based in the community as a GP. The vast majority of hospital doctors work in wards and outpatient clinics, predominantly in the public sector (NHS), but there are also a lot of opportunities in the private sector.
The career of a doctor is a career of lifetime learning starting from graduation from a medical school, licensure, and following voluntary certification. There are also some certain soft skills required to succeed in a doctor’s role: problem-solving, communication skills, and service orientation to name a few.
