If you are interested in knowing the history of choosing a non-dental direction, then here it is.
About the 5th year of the Tashkent Medical Academy, I got on the cycle of anesthesiology-resuscitation in the most ordinary intensive care unit of the most ordinary Tashkent hospital. Everything was there as it should be - tired doctors with bruises under their eyes on the half of their face, in crumpled coats and gray-blue-green surgeons, old ventilators, torn earbuds, ketamine by the river, propofol only on holidays (and then one ampoule from the pocket of cool surgeon with the words "bro, give good anesthesia as a brother, eh? This is my familiar relative, the president's friend"), reusable endotracheal tubes, laryngoscopes with inoperative bulbs and so on. Everything was stylized as walls with faded tiles and large windows with frames peeling from old age. What can you fall in love with here? It would seem ... if you fell in love with the department of radiological diagnostics with an MRI machine in TESLA's PALTARA, all the doctors there smell delicious, do not wear surgeons, and women have beautiful long red nails. But no!
After a series of events that happened after the sister's cry from the intensive care room "Hurry! We have a stop !!!" I realized that this is what I am ready to study for another hundred years. After my sister's battle cry, a bustle began, in which I did not understand anything, but I was firmly convinced that the doctor who was now doing an indirect heart massage was as cool as God himself! I even managed to participate. I was entrusted with a mega-responsible task to roll up the ECG device and apply electrodes. I did it, what I was incredibly proud of! The patient was evacuated. And the tired doctor, after the announcement of the appointments, just left the hall to deal with other patients and write diaries. I even saw him afterwards drinking coffee and smiling. After such an incident !!! For me it was a little shock, but for him it was a job that he coped with, and the result of his work was a living person! And it was very cool! Then I was too young to think and analyze the reasons, to understand that, perhaps, everything was not so scary and his actions were not entirely accurate and correct, etc. But the patient was alive !!!
After this incident, I categorically abandoned the idea of ​​my fellow students to close the cycle for money, prepared a report on acid-base balance, brilliantly reported, downloaded the textbooks of Sumin and Bunyatan and began to dream of my resuscitation future every day .
Then various circumstances brought me to residency at the department of academician Bunyatyan himself and I fell in love with the specialty even more strongly. Anesthesiology has become my favorite.
Now I work as an anesthesiologist in a maternity hospital and I never stop dreaming that anesthesiology and resuscitation will be with me for a very long time and I will have enough strength, knowledge and love to be useful for patients and, perhaps, someday help someone - somehow love this specialty as much as I do.

The main thing is to try to get an appointment with doctors of different specialties, but not as a patient)))
Get a job as an assistant, if there are relatives in medicine, ask to sit at the dentist's office, look at his work ...
I was helped by the work during the educational practice from the institute, when you yourself conduct (a therapist, orthopedic or surgical appointment) you will immediately understand what you are interested in.
Try to see as much as possible live, and even better do it yourself then will come answer.
