So your about 19 when you start college. That can take more than four years., four years of medical school, one year of internship. and five years of residency. So what about 33?

If you want to be a surgeon, get a job in an out patient surgical center. Like the janitor, or medical assistant. Volunteer to sweep the side walk, if that gets you meeting people. Like surgeons. Have them teach you how to sew/sutures. If you want to be a surgeon, you need to like sewing things. If you want to be an orthopedic surgeon, become a construction worker, for a while. I was watching a documentary about a trauma center. ( Trauma Life in the ER) And they still air them. A surgical resident in Cleveland, was a mechanic for eight years, before he became a surgeon. Think that looked good on his residency application?

I’ve said this before, the best way to become, or see if you like surgery, is become a surgical technician.

4 years college + 4 years med school + 5 years of general surgery residency = 13 years of school after high school. If you don't take a break, you will be about 31 years old when you finish training.
