Do people who study in medicine see themselves becoming clinical physicians for life or was it just a mistake?
Do people actually study medicine to become a clinical physician or is that just a temporary job to make it through school and become something else like a surgeon or dermatologist?

I'm not sure what you mean by "clinical physician." When people study medicine in the US, they go through a standard medical school curriculum that includes coursework, clinicals, and medical rotations. Upon graduating, they enter a residency program, which is where they learn their specialization area - that could be family medicine, pediatrics, surgery, dermatology, etc.

Not sure what you mean, “clinical physician” is not a US term. All doctors graduate med school as a physician, then in residency they specialize, you aren’t even licensed until you do 1 year, PG-1, residency. No one would really stop there, even general physicians do a residency in family practice or internal med. so they don’t become something else.
