Salaam wa alaikum

i was thining about being a doctor and then going on to become a Pathologist, a person who does autopsies and all that on dead people.

 

is this allowed in Islam?

 

and does anyone know how many points you have to get on average to enter a university?

dear asian girl,,

did u say pathologist...well im taking pathology as a course to be able to know the cause of cell injury and death,,,etc by the specialized cells and chemical mediators...the microscopic level is also so essential for the diagnosis...

 

but what does all this have to do with the dead ppl sis??

 

and concerning the points u have to get...well i guess it is dependent on which country and which university u want to attend...for instance here in jordan u have to get a high school score not less than 96%

 

wish u the best

Al salam #alaikom

It was me who just posted by the way. Oh and the best choice for a female in the medical field would be a pediatrician I think, because you can work with all children whether they are boys or girls and it is permitted in Islam because they have not reached the age of maturity yet.

I also wondered, do you have to pick the type of doctor you are going to become and then prepare for it during Medical school or do you branch off later on after you leave medical school?

I'm having trouble on what career I should choose. I am in my second year of college and have thought about doing medical many times, but I'm not sure about it. I'm not sure because a couple of things come to my mind when I think about it:

 

1. takes too long.

2. no time 4 anything else, like increasing my Islamic knowledge.

3. will get married late.

4. too competitive/tough.

5. half way in I decide its too tough/not for me/etc.

6. cost too much and will be in debt for a long time.

 

That's all that comes to mind right now, even though all this I still want to be a doctor in the back of my mind. I'm really confused, I don't really know what my interests area as far as a career/job. I mean, I used to watch ER( a medical tv show) before and I really enjoyed watching it, if that means anything.

 

Any advice will be appreciated.

 

:D

 

:P

 

P.S. I know one of my interests, Islam, but I'm not sure what type of job I can get with a degree in Islamic studies.

 

I came into this counseling forum looking to start a topic like this but I found out one had already been started.....so could this be a sign for me to pursue medical?

 

:D

I dont mean to be against the medical field ... but it really consumes a lot of a persons time ... 10+ years of study ... meaning ... you are gonna probably get employed by the time your 30-40 .... plus female have better advantage over men ....

as ususal ... they can get married early to someone older than them and yet pursue their career ... tiz us guys ... who fall into trouble ... until and unless you are the son on a millionaire ... can you think of early Marriage in this field ... as you tend to be useless and unemployeed during this time ... plus just completing the MBBS is of no value at all ... recently .. the doctor population is so common these days ... almost 60% of my countries doctors are given cows worth job in clinics ... some are Even Employeed as NURSES ... in foreign countries ..!! (0_o)

 

So my points :

 

1) to become a doctor .. you have to be a Very good one .. studying in an expensive reputed medical college .... coz this i am speaking from what i have seen ...

 

2) a doctors life is really a hectic one ... memorizing and studying .. so until and unless you're a book worm ... i have no complaints ...

 

3) you are probably employed by the time you are 30-40 years of age .

 

4) Early marriage is kinda hard ... unless you are from a doctor family backgorund .. where you can get support from family members .. or you from a rich background .. or your better half is willing to stay with you just for the sake of being with you ..(THIS point was only refering to the guys)

 

Pros of medical :

 

1) ... YOu are doing a wonderful job helping Allah's (s.w.t) creation ....

2) ... A high income profession ... but by the time you start earning you wont be alive enough to enjoy them :D

3) .... you whole life will be based on serving mankind which is good .. but it doesn't give you time for yourself ... to learn more about Islam ... remember you are a STUDent ... and will remember that till the day you die !!!

 

Well those are my views ... and i thouroughly AGREE with ILMSEEKER .... Awww man ... sorry ILMseeker bro ... i seem to just elaborated what you said ... really sorry ... never saw that coming ... i started wrinting and saw your reply :D ... do forgive ... but then i guess ... Great MInds do THink alike ...!!!

 

So sis Free2fly ... you are a female .. which give you the upper hand ... if you are a gifted memorizer ... then i think there are no problems with it !!! :P

 

Do let me know :P ...

 

Salaam3alaikum

well in our university of jordan,,u have to study 6 years and then a year which we call it Emteyaz year in the hospital and after that it is UP TO U if u want to specialize or remain a general doc.

and of course the specializatin needs at least 4 years....

 

so it iss a looooong way

Allah be3een

salam again..

well this advice is for lmeseeker and that is if i am allowed to call it an advice

 

 

from my experience i can tell u that Yes medicine is a hard study ,,,etc.

 

but u know what....if u really really want to be a doc from the bottom of ur heart,,,then i guess u can cope with all the difficulties and just swallow them

ad IF U manage to succeed in ur studies with their pressures and ups and downs then im 100% sure that u must have succeeded in building a very strong relation with God ,,trust me on this....cuz this is what i observe in most of the students

 

well..u will have moments when u regret and say...ooh why did i put myself in this situation,,,u may sense that ur hopes went down

 

but then,,u shoud raise ur head high and say.....NO i wont lose hope...the confidense is the key factor that will solve those moments-after ur strong faith

 

well...i hope i gave u something beneficial and may God bless u

 

 

Salam

 

let us know what happens withu

:D Genetic Freak and freee2flyyy for your input. Currently I am doing Systems Engineering, but I think I might switch to anolth major or stick with SE and just fulfill the requirments for med school while getting one of these degrees. And if inshallah I want to goto med school then I will go or else I won't.

Assalamu alaykum.

 

As posted in another thread on the board, I am in my last year of medical school (graduate in June Insha'Allah and Alhamulillah!!). While in medical school I rarely (if ever) had a problem finding time for family/social life/etc. The key is organization.

 

What I normally did, was go to class and study until about 8pm Sunday-Thursday (only until 5pm or so on Friday) and took Saturday off(This was before I was muslim-now, I would have taken Friday off). I would spend the rest of the evening Sunday-Thursday and all day Saturday with my husband goofing off. Sometimes, if I felt that I wasn't getting enough studying done I would just get up an hour earlier in the morning and study during that time. Of course, during clinical years things are always harder because your schedule is at the mercy of your residents and attending phyisicans, but you can still have some kind of idea of how you want you day to go.

 

I would recommend getting a planner or palm pilot, planning your day down to the minute and sticking to that plan the best that you can (Of course, things can/do happen to disrupt it, but if you have a plan you have a way to get back on tract). :D

 

PLEASE make sure that you keep up with your religious and familial obligations. In the end, our FIRST obligation is to Allah (swt), then family and our sanity. Medicine is just a job that some of us choose to do while on this Earth.

 

Insha'Allah, this post has been helpful. :P Feel free to PM me if you have more questions.

so well a good place to find!!!well i m student of final year,inshaAllah i shall graduate next year.In my country it takes 6 years plus house job in hospital for a year then u r free to go in any medical field to specialise..and it takes minimum 4yrs,...so its exactly as yours freee2flyyyy.

muslim man u know you have exactly the same idea as i have in my mind,i m female and i love medicine,not any other field and i have decided to go to paediatrics inshaAllah...u are right that it is easy for a female to deal with patients as there are all children.

The one who said that he or she wants to become pathologist is wrong,actually the one who does autopsies is forensic histopathologist,not just pathologist.That what i know.

As far as time is concerned,it all depends on management,its true that medical is too tough and hard studies we have to do,but if we are strict to our time table and regularity then there will be no burden,we can then have time for our social activities and for family.Proper planing as tygrss said is necessary.

thats all about my experience

:D
