Many young people want to become a doctor. It is a very lucrative and rewarding career and one where you can genuinely make a difference in people’s lives. However, if you want to become a doctor, it will require a lot of hard work. Before you begin your journey, it’s important to know about the process.

Doctor training is extremely varied and involves a lot of problem-based learning to complement the regular lectures. As a doctor, you must know how to react in pressurized situations, and that’s what problem-based learning teaches you.

In this infographic from Study Medicine Europe, you will get a comprehensive overview of what’s required to become a doctor. It can take up to seven years to complete your specialized training, so if you’re anxious to get a career going quickly and earn a decent salary, becoming a doctor may be too long a process for you.
