Depends on the specific type of doctor. But generally you're looking at:


4 yrs undergrad

4 yrs med school


Then residency/fellowship/etc. That's like minimum 3-ish years, but depending on the specialty it could be 7 or more years residency.


So you could easily be into your 30s before actually having a job.
