Becoming a Doctor :: Specialties and Salaries

So you want to become a doctor? Well, first you need to decide what kind? Do you want to be like the doctors and surgeons you see on medical TV shows like Grey’s Anatomy and Scrubs? (Remember that working in a real-life hospital is far less comical and glamorous than Hollywood hospitals). Or do you want to be a specialist?
