Most doctors would say that there is no greater joy than the one you feel when you manage to help a very sick patient or when you are part of a group of scientists who discover a new medicine for a certain disease. The ability to directly help the healing process is also a continuous challenge and sometimes it is not easy to cope with it.
All over the world, there is a great uniformity of medical science knowledge and practice. This means that by graduating from a medical college in Europe you can find a job and work in any hospital in South America or anywhere else in the world. Something inaccessible to many other disciplines.
The world needs more doctors. A lot of EU countries that have forbidden or restricted employment of foreign citizens for employment but this do not apply for doctors.
