I recently graduated with an MBA and am now looking to possibly pursue medicine.
I do not have any experience or prerequisite courses. I'm 31 and male living in FL. My passion is there to help people, and I especially adhere to the philosophy of the DO profession vs the MD's.
I looked into some international programs and it seemed to good to be true. For example, the pass rate is over 80% and the acceptance rate is 45%-60%, and their tone suggested I would get in without much problem. Their reasoning for this is that I already have a degree (non-medical).
Some suggest of course that the easier, faster path is hospital administration or something more lateral to my experience/education. However, along with the geniune concern for other human life, people skills and empathy - I would be the frist to admit being called doctor has always been appealing.
Ego-driven? Well not entirely, but I believe this may be one element to help keep my eye on the prize until I've received that diploma.
comments, concerns, questions, critique, advice, etc all welcome
