A career in medicine is bound to be a very respectable and illustrious one if you do things right and go along with your good professional judgment. However, there is one facet of medicine that usually gets ignored automatically and stays in the backdrops of fame.
Doctors are among the noblest professionals in the world today. No matter who a person is in rank or in post, if he falls ill or takes up an illness, a doctor is the only choice he or she has. This is the position of respect and authority that a doctor can command. A good doctor is worth more than his own weight in gold as he will save more lives than can be counted over the course of his career.
One type of doctor, who is usually neglected though, is the sports doctor. This is a doctor who is usually neglected because he doesn't usually come into the main spotlight as the spotlight is usually on the player and on the game. But this does not mean in any way that this doctor's job is in any way inferior to the job of the doctor that you usually see in the clinic in a white coat. The sports doctor is a very ambitious doctor and these doctors are usually the ones who are of very quick thinking and are very fast on their feet. These doctors have to come up with quick and fast cures on the field and that too within minutes. These doctors are to a regular doctor what rocket scientists are to regular engineers.
In essence, a career in Sports Medicine is bound to be very illustrious, though not as fame inducing, and will also pay rather well as all the clients are very important sports professionals. These doctors are also the one who have a lesser work load thanks to their working conditions.
