I'm a third year student in Electrical and Computer Engineering and Physics. As it is, I would like to pursue a doctoral degree in solid state physics, on route to becoming a professor.
My father demands that I go to Medical School instead. I have started to consider the thought, as becoming a tenured professor seems to be a very hard thing to do.
I want an opinion as to how I will fair with the type of education Medical School offers. I figure I must have a typical engineering mind, that likes to tinker, figure things out, be creative and inventive, etc. Does this translate well into medicine? Is Medical School really barrels and barrels of memorization?
Also I had a question about being squeamish. I can tolerate looking at lots of blood and gore; however, I am also the type of person who feels like puking when I see someone puke. Does this sort of feeling fade away after going through Medical School?
