Will I stop being sqeamish ?

Hey, I really would Likw to become a doctor in medicine (or anything medicine related)  But I get squeamish when I see documentaries on operations, i jusyt look away for the time it is on the screen.I searched on the internet of how to overcome squeamishness, but most of them say to watch more videos of operations ect. I tried, but at the look of the begining picture, I decided it was a bad Idea. My parents tell me that I will not feel squeamish once i've learnt the facts, and feel confindent because of it.. should I take the chance and do so? what if i cannot handle it and have to quit? what can I do ? My predicted grade for science is A* and I am doing triple science , I enjoy biology and chemistry . I always get the feeling that someones life is in my hands, and if they die becasue of me, the thought that it was my fault would haunt me always.. but i guess once i know what to do, i won't make such a mistake.. hopefully (fingers crossed)

Thanks for any advice in advance :)

a radiologist is to employ the use of imaging to both diagnose and treat disease visualised within the human body.

well if you want to be in the medicine field you can be like almost anything , there are so many jobs that don't include  blood or anything like that you could be a physiotherapist or a osteopath you can also be a general practitioner but seriously i think you shouldn't have to make yourself accustom to blood or things you don't like because you can still do what you want without having to adjust yourself to a working place you don't feel comfortable in. i think you should research other jobs in the medicine field that you feel comfortable working in **

Cool! I think that I'm up for anything, as long as it isn't directly dealing with patients, e.g surgery, checkup...

There are so many options, and I dopn't mind any of them! I guess once I do more in a level science, I'll see what I specifically really like.

I don't want to go that  far and do therapy, becasue I don't mind other jobs related with medicine.

Thanks guys, this helped x

Have you ever done a dissection in Biology? You might find you'll become less squeamish once you realise things like that aren't as bad as you thought they were going to be.

Probably not. However, there are a lot of different medical jobs which shouldn't make you squeamish, e.g. pharmacist or radiologist.
