    Scary huh? People made fun of us bc we started at age 19! AT least we were thru puberty for the most part!

    😮 That is really weird! Does that mean he can practice medicine when he’s 17 years old???

    In the article they said he was in an MD-PhD program and that they were going to delay the clinical portion of his training until he was older (19 I think).

    His age did shock me, but at least he appears to be studying medicine for the right reasons- he wants to help people.

    Sadly, many of my peers are in it for the prestige, the money, or because they come from medical families.

    If he has a passion for medicine, then I say, go for it!!
