Yasemin’s Answer

Hi Taimane! You have to be in college for four years to obtain a Bachelor's degree. You must take the MCAT (Medical College Admissions Test)-which you do in your junior or senior year- and then you apply to medical school which is four years. After medical school you complete residency where you are a doctor and are paid but not very much as you are still considered to be in training. Residency years do change based on speciality; for example surgery is 5 years while psychiatry is 4 years.

I wish you the best!
