So, you're 13 and want to be a doctor someday. Great. Go for it. But how? I guess you're either in 8th or 9th grade. Makes no difference. Study, study, study. Take school as seriously as you can possible imagine. In high school make sure that you take all the toughest courses, including as many AP classes as they will allow you to take. In fact, if they try to limit how many AP courses you can take and you think you can handle more, don't take no for an answer. Get special permission to take more! Write letters. Have your parents write letters. Make phone calls. You must take the most demanding course load your school provides. Why? So you can get into a good college with an excellent Biology or pre-med program. Take the SAT or the ACT, and make sure you take the SAT II exams in Bio and Chem. When you go to college, bust your hump to make the highest grades possible, so when you graduate you can apply to medical school with confidence. It also doesn't hurt to volunteer in hospitals or to qualify as an EMT. I'd wait until you're in college for the EMT thing, tho. Good luck and God bless you.

What is easier a physical therapist or sports medicine doctor?

If you mean, is it easier to perform the jobs of a physical therapist or a sports doctor, then the physical therapist will probably exert more muscles in the course of a day's work than a doctor would. Both have to carry liability insurance and the mental anguish associated with the need to have that insurance. It is easier and quicker to go to school to become a physical therapist than it is to become a licensed physician specializing in sports medicine. It is harder physically to be a physical therapist, but it is harder intellectually and educationally to be a physician- because you will have to go one of the MD (medical doctor), DC (chiropractor)or ND (naturopathic doctor)routes.

Do Dilaudid and flexeril have an interaction?

Yes you can take them together but be careful. The respiratory depression effects of both drugs are amplified making overdose much easier. You might stop breathing. A lower dose of BOTH drugs must be taken to negate this effect. I am NOT a doctor and this is NOT medical advice. Speak to a doctor before mixing the drugs. Everybody's body reacts differently to medications and only a doctor can tell you if the combination is save. Best wishes to you! Yes you can take them together but be careful.

Can you go to medical school with a medical assistant degree?

You can go to medical school with any degree. You just have to take the basic science courses, take the MCAT, apply to med school and get accepted. In fact, most of my friends who have worked as medical office assistants got their inspiration to continue it to a medical school coming from their past job. Now they are very successful in their career and in helping people. I think it is rather going to be much easier to blend in the medical field since you already have a good experience in the industry with your medical assistant degree. In fact if you can do it, you can even be a working student.

Do you want to become a Doctor? Family doctors make about $300,000-$600,000 a year. One year. Pediatricians is a doctor for babies/ young children. They make about $300,000-$400,000 a year. They make a little less than Family doctors. I'm going to be a Family doctor when i grow up. I promised my family that I would become a doctor. My dad wants me to become something like a doctor, lawyer, or some career that makes good money. If you become rich, you can have anything you want. Dream house with a inside and outside pool. Big balcony like Romeo and Juliet. If a doctor can do it, they know you can. But, its only your choice. No one else's. Just yours. So, if you want to be something some day, make good grades and go to college. Get into the medical degree. Its the best degree to get into. When you graduate from high school, pick up the phone and call a college. Right away. You can have it easier in life if you want it to be. :)
