Hi, All I know is that it takes 9 years to become a G.P. I hope I have helped. In most North American training centres, it involves 4 years of medical school and usually 5 years in a General Surgery residency program. The 4 years of medical school are after one has completed a minimum of 3 years of undergraduate work. Thus, after high school, it usually takes around 12-13 years of training to become licensed as a General Surgeon. this is not an answer sincerley, future surgeon

It takes about 15-16 years to become a heart surgeon. To become a heart surgeon, you will need to complete college (4 years), medical school (4 years), a residency in general surgery (5 years), and then specialized training in cardiothoracic surgery (3 years).

It depends on the specialty, but it can range anywhere from 13 years minimum of postsecondary education to about 17 years maximum (that's with subspecialization). The shortest road to become a surgeon is to become a General Surgeon. (4 yrs undergrad + 4 yrs med school + 5 yrs residency) The longest road to become a surgeon is to probably become a Neurosurgeon who specializes in something. (4 yrs undergrad + 4 yrs med school + 7 yrs residency + 2 yrs fellowship)

A rule of thumb is that it'll take you about 30 years. 4 years of med school, 8 years of residency and 18 years to learn how to spell surgeon.

In the United States, a veterinary surgeon is generally understood to be board certified in a surgical specialty. To do this, it takes at least three years of undergraduate, four years of vet school, a one year internship then a three to five year residency. Adding this up, the minimum is eleven years of intensive study. Outside of the United States, a veterinary surgeon is a general practitioner veterinarian; depending upon the educational structure of the country, it takes somewhere between 6 and 8 years of intensive college courses.
