Marisol, my recommendation is to study like crazy for all of the years leading up to medical school and surgical residency. When you start your residency, you will require: Endurance (the hours can be very long), Organization, Attention to detail, Technical skills for suturing and knot tying.

Marisol, the best surgeons, that I ever have seen, started out as basic Emergency Medical Technicians. See if you can find episodes of: Trauma Life in the ER, it used to be on the learning channel. Now, I think it’s aired on other channels. One surgeon on there, was a mechanic, for eight years. That’s the basic idea of surgery. It also requires a lot of sutures. Are you good with a needle and thread? Can you spend several hours on your feet?

My personal favorite surgeon, was: Norman McSwain MD. Go to Amazon, there should be a book about the operating room. You can look for books, about this topic, written by any surgeon.
