As someone interested in English, is it possible for me to become a doctor?

English is my passion, but my career goal is to become a doctor. Is it possible to study English in college and take the classes necessary to become a doctor?

Yes it is very possible, medical schools will have a list of what they call pre-requisite courses required for admission listed in their website. While most of them are pretty universal (biology, chemistry, etc.) each school may have a different number of credit hours required. Majoring in a science field helps you meet these requirements while you get a bachelor’s degree. You can consider double majoring or minoring in one of your areas of interest also. Medical school looks at how well you perform in these courses, so you want to approach it the way you think you can get the best grades. Just be prepared for a bit more extra work if you want to do both
