Studying to become a doctor is a pretty tough ask. One has to study for four years as a pre-med student and then there is another five years of medical school. The student must score well at the MCATs in order to improve the chances of getting into the medical school.
There are no specializations at the start and a person can only take up a field after the completion of education and training that follows afterwards.
It is a well paying career and doctors are one of the top paid professionals in many countries. The field does, however, require a lot of sacrifices.
It is an expensive education and one must look for financial aid and student loans to be able to go through.

The time period is generally four years from start to becoming an engineer. One has to have good grades and do well on the aptitude tests in order to be considered for the engineering college.
It is not a very cheap kind of education and it is best that students apply for financial aid early on so that the burden can be lessened to a fair degree.
The selection of the major subjects is done at the start of most programs though there are common courses in all engineering programs that you must take.
The pays once you have qualified as an engineer are quite good and depending on the field of work, you may have an office or field job.
