Medicine is a glorious profession, but it is also a tough one, and requires several years of hard work, grit and tenacity-coupled, I might add, with a tough constitution and a strong heart! In these days of super-specialisation, the period of swotting over medical books stretches to 12 years. That too if one has passed every exam at the first attempt and there have been no interruptions in the education process. It is also a field in which knowledge is limitless and constantly changing. Therefore, one has to keep abreast of the latest information, and can’t even bid goodbye to studies once the degree is in hand.
