Le Chern’s Answer
I have a friends who are doctors or in training and here is what I know. At minimum, its a long training requirement
- 4 years to get a bachelors degree
- 4 years medical school
- 3-7 years in residency depending on specialty
It takes even longer if you choose to specialize in surgery.
I would go ahead and speak to pre-med counselors in colleges, who could best advise you on this.
