  • Investing almost half of the life to become a doctor- the hardest part of becoming a doctor is confining the best youth years to the books. Studying medicine takes over the social life of a person for at least 7 whole years.
  • Mental and emotional breakdowns become a part of your routine- Prime responsibility of the doctors is to save the lives of their patient but at times even after trying their level best they fail to do so. Such traumatic situations can lead doctors to have a mental or emotional breakdown, but as a layman, we tend to be unaware of this struggle.
