    Does anyone know about how long it generally takes to complete?
    In the US, I think it's typically 4 years of med school + 1 year internship + 4 years residency after that.

    I work with pathologists some, writing software to help with image storage and diagnosis. It's pattern recognition, and surprisingly can often be subjective.

    Here are the facts,

    I dont want a job that relys on the economy anymore

    I need to be able to achieve this goal in a very quick manner

    I need something that pays well

    I need something that I would be good at


    The school councelor recomended I go into engineering

    I thought I would be interested in Pathology

    I can only take one science class at a time due to schedualing conficts

    I hate learning math, but I love applying it

    I love science but have yet to take anything other than social sciences at this point

    I loathe paper work

    I also enjoy analytical psychology but I would never make a good councelor


    So I guess what I am looking for is some sort of direction between what I enjoy vs what I can do, and I dont even know where to start looking.

    Is there anyway if you guys know about a particular feild you can post the feild along with pros and cons and the time that the education generally takes to complete?

    I like electrical or software. In my opinion, they're the most creative of the fields. In mechanical and civil jobs, much of the time is spent drawing parts which fit together. But your interests could be different. When I was in Uni, chemical had the highest number of females.
