I became interested in becoming a doctor because of my own severe asthma. I have to go to the doctor a lot and I becaem very interested in the lifestyle. I was in a special program in high school (I just graduated) called the Medical Careers Magnet. I also love "medical shows" on TV. I want to be an ER doc and the fact that I just received my EMT license keeps me interested in Emergency Medicine. Although I am still quite young, I am CERTAIN I want to become a doctor. I also like Pediatrics too (as many people do) I would like any comments out there concerning advantages and disadvantages of Emergency Medicine and/or Pediatrics.
