Christopher’s Answer

Bachelors Degree: 4 years after high school is pretty typical.

Medical Degree: 4 years after college is standard for MD alone.

Neurosurgery: 7 year residency after medical school or 15 years after high school

Orthopaedic Surgery: 5 year residency after medical school or 13 years after high school.

Cardiothoracic Surgery: 2 pathways - (1) 6 year CT Surgery residency or (2) 5-7 year general surgery residency followed by 3 year fellowship in CT Surgery for total of 14-19 years after high school.


Thank you! Alexis Y.
