The doctors are best suited to be primary care fields of general and family medicine, internal medicine, and general paediatrics. These days doctor don't mind being salaried employees of group medical practices, clinics, or health care networks. It's not easy to finish the doctoral studies but once done the money is a lot. There are very important roles that a doctor plays in the society. The doctors will help you get better whenever you are sick. People have to be completely examined by doctors to be able to given a diagnosis. Patients are given thorough counselling on diet, hygiene, and preventive health care. The two types of doctors are known as the M.D. or Doctor of Medicine and the D.O. or Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine. There is not much difference between M.D.s and D.O.s but the D.O.s like to stress n the importance of body's musculoskeletal system, preventive medicine, and holistic patient care. There are all M.D.s that are physicians who practice general and family medicine, general internal medicine, or general paediatrics. These Primary care physicians are known to have regular patients.

Giving much more attention to body organs is done by those who practice general internal medicine. Children's health is mainly taken care of by general paediatricians. Whenever it is necessary the doctors ask the patients to go see obstetrics and gynaecology, cardiology, psychiatry, or surgery who are specialists in their field. D.O.s do not always take up allopathic physicians and instead are always found in allopathic physicians.

It is not uncommon for physicians who work for long hours at a stretch. A quarter of the full time physicians work for as long as 60 hours or more in a week. Caring for their patients means that diving is increased. Groups or health care organizations give them the freedom that they had required these days.

Care for patients is not difficult when doctors work in teams. The only difference between them and the solo practitioners is that they do not have that much independent. There are a few physicians on call who talk to patients over the phone and when required even make emergency visits to hospitals.

Physicians have a lot to study. First a student has to go to under graduate school which lasts for 4 years and then four hours of medical school then followed by internship which can last anywhere between 3 to 8 years. A combined program takes about 6 years to finish undergraduate and medical school studies.

Physics, biology, mathematics, English, and inorganic and organic chemistry are the subjects given to under graduates. The students also sometimes study humanities and social sciences. Local hospitals or clinics have also got volunteers who are actually students.
