    the same as

    Are my sentences correct? Could you please fix my sentence?

    1) Kids have the same problems and diseases as adults have, like Hematology, Oncology, Gastroenterology, Dermatology , Infection diseases and so on.
    2) So, you would have to spend the same amount of time to study Pediatrics the same as you would have to spend to study internal medicine.



    Thank you for your answer.

    2) So, you have to study Pediatrics as much as you would have to study for internal medicine.



    Thank you for your answer.
    Correct? Well, yes and no. Hematology, Oncology etc. aren't diseases. The grammar is OK but in 1) you should replace the fields of study / medicine with diseases related to those fields.

    Re: the same as

    Could you please tell me now my sentences sound OK?

    1) Kids have the same problems and diseases as adults have. So, you have to study many subjects, like Hematology, Oncology, Gastroenterology, Dermatology , Infection diseases and so on.
    2) So, you have to spend the same amount of time to study Pediatrics the same as you would have to spend to learn internal medicine.

    Thank you so much.

    Bill has already corrected your second sentence. You seem to have missed that.

    By the way, kids tend to have different diseases and problems from adults. That is why there is a discipline of pediatrics. For one example, disorders of growth and development don't occur in adults (unless they are residual).
