What if you do not get into medical or MBBS?
Why do students choose Fsc pre-medical? Mainly it is to become a doctor. Yesterday the MDCAT exam was conducted which thousands of students attempted. Under this situation, a hard competition among students takes place and the admission criteria for MBBS has become tough nowadays. We see there are limited seats available in the medical colleges throughout Pakistan and only a handful few would be selected and would proceed with their MBBS degree.
Thousands of students would be left with the dilemma of choosing the right career path for themselves.
The first thing to keep in mind is not to panic or lose hope in this situation. There are a lot of alternative mode of studies waiting for you that will also offer you a reasonable career in the medical field and could provide you a better position, career or money than a being a doctor would. Do not doubt yourself. You have your own place and skills that would contribute to the world around you and provide you with personal growth.
Your first step should be self analysis and insight. What are your interests in the medical field? What are your priorities? What skills and strengths do you possess? Which area do you prefer to work in?
Related to medical programs, generally you could choose a program based on these areas you want to continue in
- Public health
- Clinical Area
If you see yourself as working in a hospital, and the aura of a clinical setup is what makes you happy, you could opt from programs such as DPT, dentistry, operation theatre technology, doctor of veterinary medicine and nutritional sciences to name a few. These fields would require you to work closely with a clinical setup.
If experimenting, analysing and deducing new phenomena is your thing, you could go for studying programs such as pharmacy, forensic studies or biochemical pathology. These programs provide you with an opportunity for scientific exploration and to break new ground in medical knowledge.
If you are interested in the technical nature of jobs involving intervention with devices, pharmacological, biological or other methods to increase life span and/or improve the quality of life and want to go towards that path, there are numerous options that you could choose to specialise in that would satisfy your craving. Some programs could be medical laboratory technology (MLT), optometry and clinical laboratory sciences.
- Public Health
Public health professionals are involved in everything from identifying diseases to creating public policy. Now more than ever most of the world has witnessed firsthand COVID-19 and there will be no shortage for well trained public health professionals. If this sounds as something you want to follow, programs such as general nursing, emergency medicine and midwifery might be the thing for you.
