Richard’s Answer

Medical school takes 4 years to complete.

After medical school physicians complete a residency for additional training. These can last 3-6 years and are sometimes followed by an additional year or two of fellowship subspecialty training.

Naiara’s Answer

An additional 4 years of medical school. You will then received you MD and be called a physician, however you cannot practice medicine without a residency training, these vary in length. The shortest residencies are 3 years. So a total of 7 years after your college.
