based from the discussion, i understand that to become a theoretical physicist, one MUST have a degree in physic..however,
1. izzit possible for someone with medical degree to continue study to become theoretical physicist?
2, if not do they have to take physic course in order to continue to be theoretical physicist?

The physics and math you learn in a medical degree in no way prepare you for grad level work in physics. You would basically have to start over.

Well I'm taking general subjects of physics I have about 3 terms left to finish my undergrad in physics, I'm also taking a bunch of math courses as much as I can to help me with my math, I wish to major in particle physics (Theoretical) I did take some experimental subjects and I will take some more labs in the future but only to get better understanding of the theory part.
Am I going on the right path?
Any suggestions on how to become a better physicist?
