Camiron’s Answer

Your first step is to stay focused in college. Your major will not matter as much as your performance in your course work. You will ultimately not choose a specialty until further down the line in medical school.

Moadh’s Answer

There are a few ways to become an OB/GYN Doctor. The one I know of and is the most common way is to first get into college and obtain a Bachelor degree ( in biology is preferred since OB/GYN is considered biology science). Try to get A's and B's in college so that you'll have a good GPA.

Moadh recommends the following next steps:

Thus after your Bachelor degree which typically takes 4 years, then you'll apply to medical schools and this is where your GPA will help. Apply to medical schools in the US which are preferred but you also have Caribbean medical schools too, and you'll obtain your medical school degree there which takes another 4 years on average
Once you're done with both bachelor and medical school degree, you then apply for residency positions in OB/GYN, and basically start working as a resident Doctor.
Finally you're done with residency you are free to practice medicine where ever you wish, and you can open your own clinic or work for a hospital.
