The time and effort it takes to become a surgeon is enormous but the benefits far surpass the difficulties. First of all, you have to make sure you really want to become a surgeon. It takes at least 12 years of schooling and training after high school. In reality, the real training starts during hig…h school. You have to make sure you earn solid grades and exceed in order to get into a college that you want to attend. At times the prestige of the undergraduate college helps in the future but more on that later. It helps to take science classes in high school, such as chemistry, physics, and biology. This will ready you for the intense science curriculum of college. The traditional path to become a surgeon is to attend and undergraduate college to receive a Bachelor's Degree (about 4 years), then you have to apply to medical school (about 4 years), and get into a residency and continue further training if you want to specialize in a field, such as heart surgery. During the undergraduate years, students typically take a year of general chemistry, organic chemistry, physics, and biology, all including a lab portion. It is very advantageous to get the best possible grades in these core classes as medical school admissions will look very closely into them. It is recommended to obtain experience in the medical field by shadowing doctors, volunteering in healthcare environments, or even working the front desk of a doctor's office. Admission officers want to see that students know what the responsibilities of becoming a doctor entails. Once students finish all of their core classes, they are advised to study and take the MCAT, the medical school entrance exam, shortly after since the information is fresh and you will have more time to take it again if you did not receive the score you wanted. After you receive your grades and MCAT scores, it is time to apply to medical schools. It is highly advisable to apply to about 15 medical schools since competition is fierce, however be aware that there are application fees. The applications will require a few letters of recommendations, written essays, and interviews from medical schools. Your application will be reviewed holistically. Admissions officers will observe if applicants are intelligent, mature, determined, and have a desire to become a doctor. Once accepted into medical school, the next 4 years will be comprised of additional knowledge, such as anatomy, biochemistry, and physiology, and students will be taken on rotations throughout a hospital to observe and obtain hands-on training in different specialties. This will help you decide what specialties to consider. During the last year of medical school, students will participate in a residency match. A residency takes place after medical school and it entails excessive training under a professional staff of medical doctors. They will interview with their preferred choices of residencies. Students will rank their preference of residencies and the residencies will rank their candidates in the same way. Then, the students will be matched with residencies but keep in mind that not all students will be match with their preferred residencies if not at all due to a number of reasons. The residency entails hours upon hours of doctoral training with limited nights of sleep. There will be tests to see how far the student has progressed and so forth. Residency takes about 2 or 3 years if students want to become a doctor but a surgeon entails much more training which lasts about 8 more years after medical school. This also includes about 2-3 more years if one wants to be surgically specialized. After all of the residencies and additional training, it all amounts to about 12-16 years. It is evident that becoming a surgeon requires a lot of hard work, time, and determination, but rest assured, you will be paid well in monetary values and also personal satisfaction knowing that you saved people's lives.

The U.S. Ambulance Corps was a unit of the UnionArmy during the American Civil War . TheAmbulance Corps was initially formed as a unit only within the Army of the Potomac , dueto the effort of several Army officials, notably Dr. Jonathan Letterman ,medical director of the Army of the Potomac …, and William Hammond , the USSurgeon-General. Until August 1862, the lack of trained ambulancedrivers meant that the wounded had to wait a long time to receivemedical care. This changed at the Battle of Antietam in September 1862 when his new system allowed the wounded men to betransferred quickly so there could be fewer deaths. The corps alsomeant that ambulances had a more centralized organization.  Due to public pressure, the Army created an Ambulance Corps for allunits and theaters of operation, through the Ambulance Corps Act ofMarch 11, 1864. The Confederate armies did not have any suchservice available within their military.  The Confederate Army did have an Ambulance Service. ( Full Answer )

The word "Missionary" was not used in the early church, but a good candidate for the first female missionary might be Priscilla. Aquila and his wife Priscilla were Jewish Christians who had been forced to leave Italy by the Romans. The Apostle Paul met them when he arrived in Corinth. Two years late…r when Paul set sail for Syria, they went with him. Later, they show up again in Ephesus, giving training to other young missionaries. Although Priscilla and Aquila are always mentioned together, it is interesting that Priscilla is usually listed first. In that culture, it was significant that Priscilla is named at all, and already speaks to the fact that her role was far more than simply "Aquila's wife." For her to be named before her husband suggests that her role in these missionary activities was greater than that of her husband. ( Full Answer )

The US Surgeon General David Satcher, who held office from 13 February 1998 to 12 February 2002, first called for a national attack on obesity. He issued a crucial warning that obesity is a major threat to life in the US. At that time, 13 % of children and 60% of adults in the US were overweigh…t or obese. It is currently estimated that approximately 25% of teenagers and children in the US are either overweight or obese. In addition, according to statistics from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 2003--2006 and 2007--2008, 68% of US adults are overweight or obese. These are: . 68 percent of all adults . 72.3 percent of men . 64.1 percent of women. Moreover, one third are obese. These are: . 33.8 percent of all adults . 32.2 percent of men . 35.5 percent of women. Since 1980 obesity in adults has doubled . Since 1980 the number of overweight children and adolescents has tripled. This has resulting in a significantly higher incidence of diet related diseases among children and adults. At this pace, if the epidemic goes unchecked, the numbers can double and triple again in the next 20 years. Currently, approximately 300,000 Americans die per year from diseases or conditions caused or aggravated by being overweight or obese. At this point, without major intervention, the number of deaths will drastically increase. (This applies to many countries.) ( Full Answer )
Who was the first Surgeon. When. How old was he when he or she got apointed Surgeon. And Who appointed him or her?
Sorry to disappoint but that cannot be answered. The first surgeon would date back to prehistoric times, when surgery was pretty much an extremely painful amputation. Cavemen did this, so there's no way of knowing who was the first one.

The course will be two days long (for the youth badge/ the red badge) then at the end of the seccond day you will have three exams, they consist of, CPR, recovery position and 'drsabcd' and the fi…nal once will be a scenario that one of the officers will make up. If you pass all three exams you become a qualified first aider. You will have to wait about three months to receive your well earned badge abd certificate. Cdt Winsor. ( Full Answer )

My view is extremely biased, but from personal experience, they are not too bad. But if you want a first aid course that gives you the basics you need to help someone on the street, their courses do not cater, as far as I know. The British Red Cross have, this year, introduced a new course called E…veryday First Aid - these one-hour courses give you all the practical skills you need to save a life, without all the in-depth details that you really don't need to know about to help someone who is bleeding. You don't need to know the different types of bandages you can use to help their bleed, all you need to know is to put pressure on the wound and lift it up above their head. So if you want the in-depth stuff, their courses are good, but ours are just as good! :) If you want practical skills - find a red cross centre near you, ask them about everyday first aid (or look on the website) and get yourself on a course to learn how to save a life!

St John Ambulance originated from the Knight's Hospitallier during the crusades in Jerusalem. It's purpose was to protect the sick and provide care. The organisation was recognised by the Pope and moved to the town of Amalfi in Malta, (hence the symbol of Symbol of the Amalfi Cross). The organisatio…n was outlawed by Henry VIII (seeing it as a Catholic organisation) and returned under Queen Victoria in 1882 who granted St John Ambulance her seal (the lions and unicorns). The organisation continues to exist to this day serving as a reserve for medical services in times of national emergency (e.g. war or natural disaster) as well as providing first-aid cover at public events.

Surgeons is the plural form of surgeon, which is a doctor that specializes in cutting people open to fix internal problems.
Ambulances are commonly staffed in two person crews. The type of licensure these people have depend on the type of ambulance they are operating in. There are two different types of ambulances: Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Life Support (ALS). A BLS truck is staffed with at least one EMT-Bas…ic or sometimes, an EMT-Advanced. The other crew member is either another EMT-B, EMT-A, or an Medical First Responder (MFR). A BLS truck is equipped to deal with most emergencies but will not have all the capabilities of an ALS truck. ALS trucks are staffed with at least one EMT-Paramedic, and either an EMT-B, EMT-A, or another EMT-P. These trucks and crew are trained in advanced methods such as cardiology and pharmacology and are able to do things like EKGs, start IVs and administer drugs, and intubate. An ambulance will always have at least an EMT-Basic, and most ambulances are ALS, meaning they have at least one Paramedic at all times. ( Full Answer )
