Hi Sharieanna! I’m sorry no one’s answered your question yet. We're working hard to get it answered by Professionals with the best insights, but in the meantime I've included a link to a relevant Q&A here on CareerVillage.org that should be super helpful for you to read through.


Cierra asked: How many years does it take to become an OBGYN?, and one of the Pros who answered it said:

As you can see, the job outlook is good and so are the earnings when you are qualified.... but you will need to invest in your education and work hard to reach this goal. At least eight years to reach the education and experience requirement...
