About how long would it take to become an Oncologist?

I have a great passion to become an oncologist due to life experiences therefore I was wondering how long does it take. Either way, I'm always going to want to follow that career path #pre-med #oncology

If the 14 years seems overwhelming, remember that you start getting a salary as soon as you start residency (the first year after medical school.) That is a nice incentive to keep going:)

Oncology is a great field requiring a medical doctorate. This means that you will have to complete college with a bachelor’s degree as well as all of the Pre-med requirements. GPA should probably be 3.5 or better. You will also have to score well on the MCAT. Once accepted to medical school, as long as you pass your classes and perform reasonably well during your four years of medical training, you can apply for an internal medicine 3-year residency. Following that, you will apply for a 3-year hematology and oncology fellowship. 4 years college + 4 years med school + 3 years IM + 3 years Heme Onc = 14 years of school after high school.
