what are some "shortcuts" to reduce the time it takes to become a doctor in college
I am a 9th grader in high school and I am thinking of becoming a doctor. not sure what type yet; however I am aware that college could take a long time and I am wondering if their is anything i could do now to shorten the process. #medicine #doctor #medical-doctor #college
I think the most accessible "shortcut" to you as a high school student is through working on undergraduate coursework before you enter college, thereby reducing the time it takes for you to get your undergraduate degree. Taking AP or CLEP exams for college credits sounds like it could be a good option for you.
As for actual medical school, I know there are few programs that are 2 year shorter than usual, but I'm not sure if that's what you meant when you asked the question.
Anyway, good luck!
