i finished high school on time, in 1998. i did 'school' in between, but then i 'got it together' and went to school in 2005-2006 for massage therapy and got to the finish line for that. but it was never my intention to just be a massage therapist. don't get me wrong, i give mad MAD props to my fellow MT's doing their thing, i just have an issue with all the b.s. and politics that surround the health field in general.
my goal is to become a doctor (internal medicine with a concentration in neurology/neuroscience)...also, i want to return to the days of doctors making house calls and home visits for those who just can't make it to the doctor. and, i want to provide my services for free/very little...like say the cost of a co-pay for coming into an office/barter system.
so.....anyone know or can anyone suggest how i'd do that?

Yup.... 4 yr undergrad in pre-med, biology, etc..., 4 yrs medical school.... then the residency. Being a mom, and an older student you may qualify for a ton of grants... start applying like crazy! The country is seriously in need of Primary Care Physicians (PCP's) so there may be programs and grant to help if that is your intended specialty! Good Luck!!
If I had more direction and support when I was graduating HS that's where I probably would have landed too!! My 7 yr old wants to be a vet... and even if that changes I will fully support and help her with this goal, or any other!! ;o)
