It may very well take approximately 14 years to become an Orthopedic Surgeon.

You would start with four years of college with an undergraduate degree focused on Biology, physics and chemistry. Follow that four years of medical school, one year of an internship and four years of a residency and an optional one year study of a fellowship.

What you choose to take in high school really does not matter. Just do well enough to get into a good (yet inexpensive) college. On the road to becoming an ortho surgeon, you want to stay out of debt as much as possible, especially at the college level. Go into debt, if you must, at the medical school level. I am an orthopedic surgeon.



some of them go to school for ten to fifteen years


After completing your school you will require another 12 to 13 years to train as a Neuro surgeon


you have to go to a specialized medical school, but you have to know how to spell surgeon before you can do that!!

•The education of an orthopedic surgeon:You must first go to university/college and get a university/college degree, attend medical school and graduate either as a Doctor of Medicine (MD) or a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO). Starting to study the essential subjects needed in high school is also recommended. The essential subjects are English, biology, mathematics, physics, and chemistry. A person must also take a final exam for board certification as a specialist. Next, an orthopedic surgeon completes his/her residency, which consists of a one-year internship and four years of rotating through the major specialties in several hospitals to get experience in orthopedic surgery.Depends, what do you intend to do to your patient?

You need a 4-year bachelor's degree from a college to get to podiatry school. Podiatry school is 4 years long and it is followed by a residency in a hospital for one, two or three years.


it's not orthopedic school. it's 4 years of college then 4 years of medical school. then 1 year internship then 4 year residency. prices vary depending on what college and medical school you go to. medical school is extremely difficult to get into. and is very expensive. then you need to have specific orthopedic training after all of that school


If you are in a major city like Mexico or Guadalajara go to the consulate web page and they have listings of health care providers.

In the U.S., orthopedic surgeons first do a pre med in college then take MCAT exam then apply to a medical school. After finishing 4 yrs of med achool, orthopedic surgeons must do an extra comprehensive five-year residency program. Upon completing the residency, you will need to be board certified and meet the state's licensure requirements before practicing. Best regards , Dr. Adam Salman (a surgeon myself)

To be a surgeon, you should take math and science classes in high school, then take biology or premed classes in college and go to medical school.


It depends what type of school (public vs. private) for undergrad and medical school the surgeon attends, but it will cost anywhere from $350 to $550 USD.


Any infection in the body would be of concern to an orthopedic surgeon. as infection can travel from one part of the body to another. Orthopedic surgeons are particularly paranoid about the risk of infection as the bone is about as deep as you can go in the body. I suggest you speak with him/her about this before you go under the knife.


It takes 7 - 12 yrs to become a oral surgeon, it depends which school or hospital you go to.


Typically, to become a surgeon, you would need a four year college degree and a three year medical school degree. After that, there would be internship, surgical residency, and possibly a fellowship before practicing.
