Cameron’s Answer

The journey to become a doctor includes 4 years of undergraduate education, 4 years of medical school, and 3-7 years of residency (depending on your specialty). Following residency, you can receive further training through fellowship programs, which last between 1 and 3 years.

David’s Answer

The time to become a doctor is not as important as the journey. If you enjoy what you are doing the time goes quickly.
4 years of college
4 years of medical school
3 to 8 years of post medical school training for your selected specialty.
Seems like a long time, but 10 years from now you will be 10 years older whether you pick this plan or a different course.
Do what you will enjoy
