Can A Medical Student Learn Programming by yungcheda(m): 7:29am On Nov 12, 2015
Hello,

Can a Medical student learn programming

I love the idea behind coding but I am going in to study Medicine. I just want to know if I can combine studying Medicine and practicing programming at same time?? Can I be an intermediate coder in my 6 yrs of studying medicine?? I intend practing coding everyday for 6yrs but giving greater attention to my medical course...I just want to know if it is possible. If 6 yrs is too small or too much...

Your intelligent replies will be greatly appreciated

bro you can do. If u set your goals right. And mind you 6yrs is not too much, technology expands everyday, what is in vogue now might be not be again in 6yrs, so you can't know everything in six year, but you could be an expert in 6yrs IF you know what you are doing.

Thanks for the replies.

Why I ask this is because I want to create some good apps to help in Medicine and health niches but I cant because I do not really know how to do it...before I got admission, I already had some knowledge on Java up to the web development component part of Java but I am scared Medicine wont give me the time to expand and learn more...

I spoke to some medical students and they were like, except if I am ready to use the very little time they use to rest to practice my coding...otherwise, I wont really have time for coding... sad

I just want to continue what I already started

I need the replies to be without bias...let me know if I should just give up on programming and probably come back to it when I am done undecided
