Is it possible to be a doctor even if you're not a genius?

depends on what type of doctor. Some areas have higher criteria than othrrs. Reguardless you don't need to be a genius but you do need to be slightly above average intelligence and dedicated/driven.0
Of course you can do anything with hard work and perseverance. Just study hard I have a friend who is a medical student and he says its pretty difficult but doable.0
Yes I think so. If you have good memorization skills and know how to read and look for symptoms. But an okay doctor just works the books while a great doctor has the people skills as well, so you can have a true discourse that benefits both practitioner and patient.
Doctor's are not geniuses in the same way ground-breaking scientists are.0
Yes in know a woman went to our local colleges to become a doctor
and know living in Norfolk Va making lot of money she even had her own practice
sold her practice and moved away.0
if u can memorize da knowledge from da books... then... YEAH 8)0
Yes I think so I went to science class with a lot of pre-meds. You just have to study hard not naturally smart0
Yes, but you'll have to work VERY hard for many years. If you're not a lazy person and never had too much trouble getting through high school/college with good grades, then medical school is a viable option.0
As a doctor... yes. The entry exams are indeed difficult, but if you can get past those medical school is hard work as there is a lot of content but the actual work isn't difficult.0
Yes, all you have to do is try your hardest. You always get what you work for provided you never give up.0
If you are average intelligence you will have to work harder, but you can achieve it0
I think a genius would be bored with the memory work.0
Absolutely. Some of the smartest people are not doctors but then again some of the dumbest people I know are doctors. It's always a toss up. If you are a hard worker that can process a lot of information on little rest then you should be fine.0

I've been to some pretty stupid doctors in my time. I wondered how in hell they even got through medical school when they came in to the examining room with untied shoes and could barely spell their own names on my prescriptions.0
There are a lot of idiots that claim to know it all because they have an MD or Dr. behind their name.0
Yes, it's possible.0
