According to https://www.usnews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-medical-schools/hardest-to-get-into-rankings acceptance rates for Med Schools range from ~2 to ~12%. The good news is that 95.9% of folks graduated after 6 years.

Surgery is even more competitive and from a quick scan here https://www.kaptest.com/study/medical-school/best-10-medical-schools-for-surgery/ indicates that only ~10% of graduates get into surgery. Based on this https://www.hcplive.com/view/surgical-attrition-rates-impacted-by-expectations-persist-in-later-program-years looks like only 80% made it through the surgical program.
