Through the practice at the hospital, I got to know what doctors's career and life are like.

Or should I say careers and lives?

Thank you very much in advance :)

  • I suggest "what a doctor's career and life are like", which is a generic expression applying to doctors in general. "Got to know" is fine, and "came to know" would be okay too, and slightly more formal. – Greg Lee Oct 3 '17 at 21:13

I was always told off at school for using 'got' It was frowned upon by all my English teachers.

'. . . I became acquainted with the careers and lives of Doctors."


The possessive plural is doctors', without the extra 's'. I would say careers and lives, yes.
