As a Neurosurgeon, how many years in total did it take to get where you are in your career today?

I am a high school sophomore and have always wanted to have some type of medical career. For the last couple of years, I've been leaning toward surgery and I'm really interested in the human brain which led me to Neurological Surgery as a specialty. I would love to hear from someone he's living my dream life as a neurosurgeon. career brain neurosurgeon

Hi Wanzetta!

I'm glad to read that you're interested in Neurosurgery! Your question seems to be directed to a Neurosurgeon. I'm not a surgeon, but I what I read said that it takes four years of medical school resulting in an M.D. or D.O. degree. One year internship in general surgery. Five to seven years in a neurosurgery residency program.

Hope this helps!
