Physicians check the wellness of their patients; collect medical histories; prescribe medicines, and perform diagnostic tests on patients. They often advise patients on diet, sanitation, and preventive healthcare. Surgeons are also physicians who practice medicine by treating patients injuries diseases and deformities. Specialist doctors are doctors who are trained and certified to work in one particular field of medical practice. Specialist physicians focus on one area of study and are experts in that particular field
If you are interested in becoming a physician you have to put into consideration the amount of education you will need. The usual path to becoming a medical specialist is to first get an undergraduate degree then go to medical school. After going to medical school then comes residency training.

Medicine is every child`s first pick in choosing a profession. A doctor is a noble profession, respected by everyone around the world.
