You can pursue PhD degree after obtaining a bachelor degree and/or master degree. PhD programs are usually 4-6 years depending on what field. Grad school is different from undergrad so please do sufficient research beforehand.

Yes, you can. AP classes are not required to be accepted into medical school. You will need to take pre-med classes in college in order to apply for medical school. You should focus on doing well in the pre-med classes and scoring well on you MCAT.


Here's a good link: https://www.princetonreview.com/med-school-advice/7-tips-for-pre-med-students


If doesn't matter whether you attend a 2 year community college or a 4 year college/university immediately after high school. A 2 year college is often cheaper/more affordable. You can then transfer to a 4 year college/university to complete the last 2 years.


  1. College, pre-med classes and MCAT: 2 years community college + 2 years university OR 4 years university
  2. Medical school
  3. Residency training

Good luck!
