In order to become a cardiologist, you usually have to complete

a doctorate degree in medicine (M.D.). Once you have your degree,

you must complete a residency program (internship) in cardiology,

which can take many years. You obtain your cardiologist title

afterwards. If you want to become a cardiac surgeon, the residency

is longer.
