Estelle’s Answer

4 years of college
4 years of medical school
3-5 years residency ( in my case, 4 years for obstetrics and gynecology)
1-3 years fellowship for even more specialization

Remember that you will pay tuition for college and medical school, but you are paid as a practicing doctor during residency and fellowship training.

It depends on the type of doctor. All doctors go to medical school which is 4 years. After medical school, doctors go to residency which can be 3-5 years depending on the type of training. Surgeons spend 5 years in residency, then might go to a fellowship training for additional training depending on the type of surgeon he or she wants to be. Pediatricians and internal medicine doctors spend 3 year in residency and afterwards can also do fellowship if desired. I encourage you to ask doctors in fields you are interested in how long it took for training.
