Careers in the medical field pay big bucks. Various specialties from Surgeons to General Practitioners are high ranking in the pay scale. With the responsibility of the health and well-being of others to consider, no wonder the pay is so good. Medicine is a difficult career to get into, and you should know, it’s not easy. It’s best to only consider medicine if it’s a passion of yours already because the hours are long and the rewards are often little!
