Hi Andrew !

Good for you, wanting to be a surgeon!! It takes a lot of dedication and hard work, but the benefits are worth it. I recommend starting your clinical hours (i.e., patient contact hours, such as volunteering at a hospital or nursing home and keeping a record). Medical schools require you to have those contact hours but most students apply with triple the minimum standard. I also recommend volunteering for charities or local programs, it shows that you can be kind and sympathetic towards others.
