What can you do in high school to prepare for a career in radiology?

Asked Charlottesville, Virginia

I'd like to know what opportunities there are for a high school student to start preparing. Additional information about anything after high school, such as information about college plans/majors and any certifications/advice on how to look for a job would be great as well. #college #doctor #medicine #high-school #radiology #radiologist

Hi, I found this for you on a website called innerbody.com/careers in health - good luck! Education The first step in becoming a radiologist is to obtain a bachelor’s degree. Pre-medicine students may major in any subject but need to meet prerequisites in math, biology, organic and inorganic chemistry, physics and the humanities. Students can strengthen their medical school application by earning academic honors, volunteering, conducting scientific research and achieving high scores on the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT). Many four-year colleges and universities have pre-med advisors who assist students in planning an appropriate program of study. Next, aspiring radiologists move on to medical school. Because radiology is an extremely competitive specialty, candidates must excel academically in order to compete for available residencies. They will also benefit from top scores on Steps I and II of the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE).

Thank you very much! :)
