David’s Answer

Just do your undergraduate first. Then go to medical school. After that, you will do your one year of internship. Then you can pick which school you want to do your residency with.

You will do a lot of anesthesia skills as a paramedic. That looks real good when you are applying for a residency. A good friend of mine just retired as an anesthesiologist. She was a paramedic first. The only school that mattered where she went, was the residency. And she was torn between two excellent schools. She picked the one closest to home.

If you are sold on what you want your specialty to be, before you enter college. You can pick a pre-med that is affiliated or connected to that specialty. One of the residencies that my friend was torn over, was Dartmouth University, in Hanover, NH. They do have a pre-med program. I have been to their hospital on several occasions. And I’ve never had a bad experience with any of the residents or employees.

David recommends the following next steps:

Become a paramedic

Become a medical assistant in a pain management clinic!

Hi David, just for clarification, are you saying that your school for undergrad and medical school do not matter? It's just where you do your residency? Gurpreet Lally

I’m going to clarify this a little better, with another paragraph. My apologies for not doing this earlier. David George

I guess other advice I can give is your education in this area will be quite expensive so maybe keep that in mind when looking at undergrad and find a good school that is maybe more affordable since you will have Medical school costs, etc to think of.

Any 4 year university should do the trick. Pick the major or your choice but maintain a GPA of 3.8 + and make A's in your pre-med classes.
