I believe I have posted on this question before from you. My steps are extremely detailed and correct, please reference those. There are a ton of steps and it is a great challenge, but a very rewarding career (as I work with two very talented neurosurgeons). Good luck!

Hi
The first step is to get into medical school. Medical school is usually very competitive and the student with the best scores get selected first. Depending where you live and which medical school you are going to, you can go straight into a medical school that has a combined college + medical school program of 6 years. Otherwise expect to go to college 3-4 years for your pre-medical courses, then 4 years to medical school.
Upon finishing school you will enter your specialty trainning (brain doctor) program . There are 3 types of brain doctors. One is a psychiatrist who specializes in mental disorders such as anxiety, depression and schizophrenia. Neurologist on the other hand diagnose and treat nervous system disorders such as migraines, pinched nerves, seizures and many other. Neither psychiatry nor neurology have surgery involved. The third type of brain doctor is the brain surgeon or neurosurgeon, the neurosurgeon does brain surgery such as removing tumors and blood clots. You will most likely decide which type of brain doctor you will be during medical school since you will have rotations (courses) on all of these.
In the meantime stay focused in achieving excellent grades and living a balanced student life. While I was in college I took also some art and sports classes and volunteered at a medical post.

Been a doctor is a very rewarding career, best wishes!

Gil’s Answer

Do as Dr. Ben Carson did. Study hard, get good grades in high school, go to medical school for four years, and then continue with specialized training, which will include an internship in neurosurgery. It's a long process involving many hours of hard work and years of study (about ten years or more), but the results are worthwhile and very rewarding. Do a web search on the topic or look at videos on YouTube for more information and to see if that is the field you really want to go into.
