My child wants to be a doctor

“As a family physician, guest lecturer at a local medical school, and creator of a pre-med curriculum for young learners, I’m often asked by parents how to support their child who wants to be a doctor.

The most important point to remember is that you don’t need to have any science background or be a professional of any sort to support your child. We all want to help our children follow their dreams! Most parents know as little about supporting a budding physician as I do about how to help my son, who wants to dance professionally. That’s OK! I do the same thing as you: I look for answers online. And I’m here to give you some ideas. If you know anything about dancing classical ballet professionally, you’re welcome to help me in return!

So here is the advice I give parents who want to do their best for their child who wants to be a doctor.”

Robin Dickinson is a family physician and creator, Dr. Robin’s School.

She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “My child wants to be a doctor.” (https://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2021/05/my-child-wants-to-be-a-doctor.html)
