My ultimate goal!
A description of my career goal is: diagnose, treat, and medically manage patients with arthritis and other rheumatic diseases. I want to pursue this goal because I have the passion to help kids with rheumatic diseases. The beginning salary for this job is $161,000. The highest salary is $240,000. But the average salary and what most doctors make is $194,000.
It takes about 14 years to accomplish this goal, you have to obtain a M.D or D
