Farhan’s Answer

The only way to become a cardiac surgeon is by going through medical school. However, I think you are asking about subjects you should study prior to attending medical school. In general, the people that I know who went to medical school to become doctors studied biology, chemistry, biochemistry or a combination of these in college. A background in biology will help you understand the human anatomy while a background in chemistry or biochemistry will help you develop a mindset to understand diseases and medications.

However, I think that to be a well-rounded individual, you should not ignore other subjects. Medical school, internships and residencies will teach you what you need to know about being a cardiac surgeon. But, college will likely be the last time you'll be able to study history or literature or art or music before going to medical school. So, if you have an interest in exploring those areas, you should definitely go for it.

Lanie’s Answer

This goal will take a long time, and lots of schooling, to achieve, but it is all doable! Your first focus is getting into college to complete your undergrad degree. You can major in anything, but you will need to complete all of the pre-med requirements that can be found on medical school's websites. Generally, expect to need to complete general and upper levels of biology, chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, physics 1 and 2, english, math, and sociology/pyscology. During this time, be sure to pursue volunteering, extracurriculars, clinical experience, etc to become a strong applicant for medical schools.
