To become a brain surgeon you need to take the following steps:

1.) Graduate from high school and apply and get accepted to a university.

2.) At a 4 year university you will work towards a bachelors degree in pre-medicine or pre-health with at least a GPA of 3.5 or better. Beginning your senior year in college you will start appplying to medical schools.

3.) You will attend a 4 year medical school. Near graduation you will need to apply for a residency program at a graduate school of medicine.

4.) Once in a residency program it will depend upon which field you enter as to how long your residency will be. Some are 3 years such as family practice. Surgeons can be in a residency program for 4 to 5 years. Once you are in a residency program you can specialize in your chosen field.

So the total time to become a brain surgeon or Neurosurgeon, not counting high school, is roughly 12 years. (Plus or minus a few years.) To become a brain surgeon you need to take the following steps:

1.) Graduate from high school and apply and get accepted to a university.

2.) At a 4 year university get good grades (average is about a 3.5), do well on an admissions test (MCAT) and apply to medical schools.

3.) Attend a 4 year medical school. Near graduation you will need to apply for a residency program.

4.) Residency programs vary in length depending on the field. For neurosurgery 7 years is typical. To become a brain surgeon you need to take the following steps:
