FINALLY !!!!!!! (and for my 4000 th post)
After 6 and a half long years of studies and 6 long months of exams I have finished with all success ! I have become a doctor yesterday. This shows we can A.net long hours and still pass exams. I know many of you will send me cargo bay pictures but the event is so joyful I have to exclaim myself on this website, my favourite one with Facebook !!!!

Just out of curiosity, how does one become a doctor when they are still in the 21-25 range? I'm assuming you still have some sort of in-clinic or in-hospital residency to do? Either way, congratulations!

I'm not sure about Costa Rica but at least in Taiwan, the med school system is seven years directly after high school. It is a BS/MD program. So considering graduating high school at around 17, one can be a doctor at age 24. Residences are doctors too...from my understanding; just that they have a supervisor overlooking their performances? Not sure. I'm heading to a completely different field after I decided MD is not my path even though I'm a psychobio/neuroscience major...
Braulio - you have every right to be over the moon, it's a very great achievement. Congratulations, I hope you go on to get a good job and have a successful career helping many people and saving many lives.
