Training & Education Requirements
00:31
Physicians must train for 11 or more years post-high school before they’re qualified to practice medicine. Individuals may apply for medical school after 3 years of undergraduate studies. Prospective medical school students may study in any area as long as they meet the required course requirements. Applicants must take the MCAT and score well to help them be a more competitive student. First two years of medical school consist of basic medical science and communication training. The last two years are spent in clinical rotations. Specialty certification is earned through residency training programs that require several years after medical school. Physicians will obtain an MD or OD degree from medical school – both are recognized by residency programs. After completing residency and obtaining proper certification via a specialty board exam, then the physician can practice as a board-certified member of that specialty. Sub-specialties require that physicians complete a fellowship (additional years of study). Completion of the fellowship prepares the physician to sit for the sub-specialty board examination. All physicians must continue to stay up to date with medical news in order to maintain skills and knowledge of the healthcare world.
