What high school courses can be taken in order to prepare for an OB/GYN career?

I plan on exploring or working in a career of obstetrics and gynecology, with a focus on gynecology. I want to be as readily prepared as possible for a career in gynecology, starting in high school. I've heard that medicine is difficult and requires a lot of preparation and dedication, and I want to start preparing now. #medicine #obstetrics #gynecology #gynecologist


CTE in the area where you live offers high school programs for students interested in careers in health. Visit https://www.gpisd .org/Page/41043. Here you will see a health science program offered at Dubiski Career High School. Several of my students interested in gynecology have pursued the health track in my state. I hope this helps. B.K.

I suggest that you contact your Career Development Coordinator at your school. If you do not have a CDC, then you will need to contact your Career Counselor. Let this person know specifically the program you are interested in as well as your career goals. Find out what grade you need to be in to enter the program. Students usually begin the program in grade 10. I wish you the best.

I highly recommend taking all of the dual credit and/or AP classes that you can. You will start college with credits towards your degree. This not only save time and money but also will free up your time in college to really focus on making great grades in your classes. Remember to find a degree that you really enjoy because your GPA is very important when it comes to medical school applications.

Take as many AP or IB courses, especially science classes, in high school. You have a lot of years of education in front of you and getting college credit in high school can save you time and money.
