What is Medicine?
Medicine is a scientific, research and evidence based profession, which covers many areas of specialisation, including general practice, public health and hospital-based specialties such as surgery, psychiatry, cardiology, and many more.
If you are considering a career in medicine, you should be prepared for lifelong learning to maintain your practising standards. Society expects a high level of technical competence.
Patients expect to be treated with patience, kindness and humanity. Ethical behaviour and rapport with people are necessary so patients can trust you with problems of their body and mind.
