How long does it take to become a surgeon

It takes a long time. College = 4 years Medical School = 4 years Surgery Residency = 5-7 years Plastic Surgery Fellowship = 2-4 years Total: 11-15 years after college

AnswerThe degree you need to become a surgeon is a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) or a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.), which takes about 8 years in addition to a residency program working in a hospital. No master's degree is required to become a surgeon.

It depends, how good of a surgeon you are. You also shouldn't be going into it for the money, if your really serious about the medical field you should go into it because you have a passion for it. It takes a very long time to become any kind of physician especially a surgeon. It takes 4 years for college, 4 years med school and 3-7 years residency depending on the type of surgeon you wish to become. So for becoming a fully board certified surgeon it takes on average about 12 to 15 years. I would have to say Orthopedic, Vascular, and Plastic surgeons make the most. If your a very busy orthopedic surgeon you can make up to $1,000,000 a year! Vascular surgeons work on the veins and blood passageways. They make about $700,000 dollars a year! Plastic surgeons on average make $400,000 dollars a year although plastic surgeons working in California make about four million a year because of high demand of the celebrities and people who are trying to become celebrities. Anyways I hope I helped answer you question! Good luck if you do follow the path to becoming a surgeon!

By Cosmetic surgeon, I assume you mean Plastic surgeon. If so, you must complete undergraduate and medical school (8 years), then finish a general surgery residency (5-6 years), then a plastic surgery fellowship (3 years). All in all, looks like 16-17 years after high school

It takes approximately 14 years, minimum. It's a hard career, but very rewarding afterwards.

If you are asking how long the studies take to become a general pediatrician: In the US it takes at least 11 years after the completion of high school (secondary school). if you are talking about a pediatric surgeon, it takes at least 15 years after high school.

In general, it takes a degree from a 4-year university, 4 years of medical school, and a 5 year residency. That's 13 years after high school or 9 after college, depending on when you want to start counting "how long it takes".

Yes it is cause you need to learn how to do math to see how long the face is going to be or the eyes so you do need education!!!=You need education for everything!!!=

it takes up to 14 years to desolve a plastic bag

it takes about 1 million years for plastic to decopose

Plastic takes 100 billion years to decompose. Even something as tiny as a plastic wrapper will not decompose for that long.

It all depends on the surgeon. When looking for a surgeon make sure that you look at where they went to school, how many operations have they done, and if they are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Some surgeons may have had the schooling but are not ceritified. When you hear about botched operations it's usually because that person went down to Mexico or didn't do enough research on the surgeon. Plastic surgery is very safe as long as you have the right surgeon.

it takes approximately 10 years alltogether to become a phycologist

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

it takes about 6 years to become fully qualified as a vet because, if you want to be a vet who is qualified as a nurse and surgeon, than you actually only need to take the surgical course, because a nurse is limited to a few treatments but as as surgeon you know what a nurse knows and everything else.

it takes fourteen years to become orthopedic/orthopedic surgeon.....four years college with many science classes, four years of medical school, one year internship and five years of residency.

As long as the plastic surgeon agrees, you can have the procedure done as many times as you'd like.

It is buried in a landfill. Scientist do not yet know how long it takes for a plastic bag to decompose.

it depends on what type of surgeon but it will take up to atleast 12 years atleast 8 to 13 years of college

Because it takes a long time to finish rotting
