Medical Schools

Medical schools offer varying advanced degrees in medicine. Highly competitive, medical schools require scores from standardized tests such as the MCAT prior to entrance. Typical doctors attend medical school for four years after a bachelor's degree and then go on to complete an internship and residency before they can practice.

Can you get into Medical school with an accounting degree?

Yes you can, as long as you fulfill all the prerequisites for any medical programs you are applying for. Most programs require you to complete classes in biology, chemistry, calculus, physics and others, but I am unaware of any programs in the US or Canada which require a hard science degree for admission. For example I had many classmates in medical school who had degrees in various fields such as linguistics, psychology, business administration and communications. The American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS) website is a good resource to learn about some of these prerequisites (at least for schools in North America) since it is the main tool used to apply for US medical schools, though you should check with individual programs to determine their application criteria requirements.

How much does medical school in India cost?

I think it costs around $100000 in fees for the entire course but you might have to pay additional donation money if your scores are not very high and you are not resident Indian and my guess is that its additional $100000 so we are looking $200000 in fees and donations and around $10000 per year living cost including one visit to your home country.

How long does it take to become a radiologist?

4 Years Undergrad + 4 Years Medical School + 1 Year Internship (Transitional, Medical, or Surgical Residency) + 4 Years Radiology Residency + an Optional Fellowship 1-3 years. So, 13 years minimum, 16 for an extended interventional fellowship

Long Answer:

After completing medical school prerequisites (typically a bachelor's degree in biology or chemistry) , Diagnostic radiologists must complete four years of medical school (M.D.) or the alternative, osteopathic school (D.O.) plus a five year of post-graduate training (residency). The first year of residency is a preliminary year in medicine, surgery or both, after which a four-year diagnostic radiology residency follows. During residency, both oral and written national examinations must be passed for board certification in diagnostic radiology. There are two separate written examinations required for certification by the American Board of Radiology, one covering the physics of medical imaging which is usually taken at the beginning of the second or third year, and a second covering clinical diagnostic imaging knowledge which is usually taken at the beginning of the third or fourth year. Both written exams must be passed before being eligible to take the oral examination, which is typically taken at the end of the fourth year. Many hospitals consider certification by the American Board of Radiology and by the American Osteopathic Board of Radiology to be nearly equivalent.

After completion of residency, radiologists may choose to either practice or enter into a fellowship program in a radiologic subspecialty (such as abdominal CT, MRI, musculoskeletal imaging, interventional radiology, neuroradiology, pediatric radiology, etc.). Fellowship training programs typically last between one-to-two years.

Radiology is currently considered a highly competitive field. Radiologists generally enjoy good compensation as well as a good balance between time required at work and time spent away from work. The field is rapidly expanding due to advances in computer technology which is closely linked to modern imaging.
To become a radiologist at least eight years of school is required. Three of those being at medical school.

What are your chances of getting into a good school if you do not have great grades but you join a lot of clubs and do everything else perfect?

This is a great question, especially in light of the recent shift in college admissions. A few years ago, admissions deans at both the University of Virginia and Swarthmore commented that the GPA is “meaningless” and “artificial.” And more schools are getting on board with the idea that the GPA is not the most important thing to consider when deciding whom they should admit.Every school has different criteria in mind when they look at high school grades and transcripts, and admissions officers know that with greater access to AP classes as well as weighted averages and grade inflation, the GPA number itself doesn’t tell very much about a particular person.
Now, this doesn't mean that you can slack off in school and let your grades slip. Schools still expect students to be challenging themselves and performing highly in school. And it also doesn't mean that joining 50 clubs and going to one meeting for each per year is going to get colleges excited.

But this DOES mean 2 things:


1. If your grades aren't PERFECT but you've got a lot of other really cool/interesting/unique things going in during high school, you're going to be just fine. And, depending on what your grades are and what else you have going on in your profile, you could have a great shot at a lot of great schools!


**But, again, don't join things just to pad your resume! Schools can see right through that. When it comes to activities, it is about DEPTH, not BREADTH. You are going to be much better off getting VERY involved and active in a FEW things things than being barely involved in 25 things. So think about what you love and get involved in THAT. You'll naturally get more and more involved in that because you like it, and then you're going to have a lot more to say about that activity than you would if you just joined every single club your school offered and barely did anything with any of them.


2. When it comes to the application, since GPA (and, to some extent, test scores) is becoming less central to the admissions decisions, the college essay is becoming more important. GPAs – and numbers in general – just don’t get to the heart of who a student is. And when admissions officers are looking for their next incoming class, they’re looking at the people, NOT the profiles. This new move away from considering a GPA is acknowledging that fact. The core of who a person is cannot be expressed in a number. But it can be expressed in a clear, engaging, unique, well-written essay that shows the school who you are (and not just what you can score).


Voice, tone, story content, pacing, structure—these are all fantastic tools to express your individuality and your unique perspective on the world. And that’s what the schools want: individuals with unique backgrounds, passions and personalities. The kind of people who can do more than ace some tests along the way; students who can bring something cool to the table, contribute to their community and make it a better place for everyone around them.


So whether you’re applying this year, or just getting a head start on your college plans, keep this in mind (but seriously – don’t stop studying!). Your academic abilities are important, but they’re not MOST important. So start branching out and focusing on the other things that make you, you: exploring your passions, getting involved in things that matter to you, engaging in things that are fun and different. Those things are going to be just as important – if not more – when it comes to getting into the school of your dreams.

If you have an art degree can you apply to medical school?

Individuals who pursue a career as a physician come from a variety of educational backgrounds. The critical issue revolves around the completion of appropriate prerequisite coursework required for medical school. This coursework could include:

  • Biology (cell biology, biology of the organism)
  • Chemistry (inorganic, organic)
  • Physics
  • Communication (written and oral)
  • Higher level math's
  • Computer literacy
  • Development of good critical thinking skills.

The American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS) is the main tool used for applying to medical schools in the US and lists many of the requirements. However each school is different and may have additional requirements, so it is advised that you look up this information from each individual program

According to the U.S. Department of Labor the common path to practicing as a physician in the United States requires 8 years of education beyond high school and 3 to 8 additional years of internship and residency. All States, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories license physicians.

Education and training. Formal education and training requirements for physicians are among the most demanding of any occupation-4 years of undergraduate school, 4 years of medical school, and 3 to 8 years of internship and residency, depending on the specialty selected. A few medical schools offer combined undergraduate and medical school programs that last 6 years rather than the customary 8 years.

Premedical students must complete undergraduate work in physics, biology, mathematics, English, and inorganic and organic chemistry. Students also take courses in the humanities and the social sciences. Some students volunteer at local hospitals or clinics to gain practical experience in the health professions.

The minimum educational requirement for entry into medical school is 3 years of college; most applicants, however, have at least a bachelor's degree, and many have advanced degrees. There are 146 medical schools in the United States-126 teach allopathic medicine and award a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degree; 20 teach osteopathic medicine and award the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) degree.

Acceptance to medical school is highly competitive. Applicants must submit transcripts, scores from the Medical College Admission Test, and letters of recommendation. Schools also consider an applicant's character, personality, leadership qualities, and participation in extracurricular activities. Most schools require an interview with members of the admissions committee.

Students spend most of the first 2 years of medical school in laboratories and classrooms, taking courses such as anatomy, biochemistry, physiology, pharmacology, psychology, microbiology, pathology, medical ethics, and laws governing medicine. They also learn to take medical histories, examine patients, and diagnose illnesses. During their last 2 years, students work with patients under the supervision of experienced physicians in hospitals and clinics, learning acute, chronic, preventive, and rehabilitative care. Through rotations in internal medicine, family practice, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, psychiatry, and surgery, they gain experience in the diagnosis and treatment of illness.

Following medical school, almost all M.D.s enter a residency-graduate medical education in a specialty that takes the form of paid on-the-job training, usually in a hospital. Most D.O.s serve a 12-month rotating internship after graduation and before entering a residency, which may last 2 to 6 years.

A physician's training is costly. According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, in 2004 more than 80 percent of medical school graduates were in debt for educational expenses.

Licensure and certification. All States, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories license physicians. To be licensed, physicians must graduate from an accredited medical school, pass a licensing examination, and complete 1 to 7 years of graduate medical education. Although physicians licensed in one State usually can get a license to practice in another without further examination, some States limit reciprocity. Graduates of foreign medical schools generally can qualify for licensure after passing an examination and completing a U.S. residency.

M.D.s and D.O.s seeking board certification in a specialty may spend up to 7 years in residency training, depending on the specialty. A final examination immediately after residency or after 1 or 2 years of practice also is necessary for certification by a member board of the American Board of Medical Specialists (ABMS) or the American Osteopathic Association (AOA). The ABMS represents 24 boards related to medical specialties ranging from allergy and immunology to urology. The AOA has approved 18 specialty boards, ranging from anesthesiology to surgery. For certification in a subspecialty, physicians usually need another 1 to 2 years of residency.

Other qualifications. People who wish to become physicians must have a desire to serve patients, be self-motivated, and be able to survive the pressures and long hours of medical education and practice. Physicians also must have a good bedside manner, emotional stability, and the ability to make decisions in emergencies. Prospective physicians must be willing to study throughout their career to keep up with medical advances.

Do you have to go to medical school to become a chiropractor?

Not a medical school per se, but you do need to go to an accredited chiropractic college (after getting your undergraduate degree) in order to be licensed anywhere in the U.S. or Canada.

In North America:

Before a student can attend a chiropractic college he/she must complete at least 3 years of an undergraduate university degree, but most students have completed their entire 4 year degree (eg: bachelor of science). Students with other undergraduate degrees (eg: BA) are also eligible for chiropractic college, but will find it more challenging without significant background in any of the sciences.

Following an undergraduate degree, chiropractic college last 3 or 4 years, depending on which school you choose to attend. The World Health Organization has stated that to become a doctor of chiropractic a student must attend no less than 4200 hours of schooling in a chiropractic college after their undergraduate degree. Some schools squish this all into 3 years with no summer holidays, most spread it over 4 years with 2-month summer breaks. Thus, to become a chiropractor, a student must attend a minimum of 6-8 years of post-secondary education, but most have a full 8 years, (after high-school).

In Australia:

The 3 year Bachelor of Chiropractic Science offers a solid foundation in science based disciplines including, chemistry, physics, biology, physiology, anatomy etc. Central to these are the core teachings in Chiropractic Principles and Techniques. Students intending on practicing as Chiropractors MUST complete the Master Of Chiropractic to gain proficiency, professional recognition and registration in Australia. The master program takes 2 years full time to complete and entrance is granted only to those with a GPA 3.2 or greater in the Bachelor degree. Units in the masters include neurology, spinal orthopaedics, peripheral orthopaedics, radiology, physical rehab, pharmacology, EPT, nutrition, advanced clinical diagnosis, chiropractic principles and techniques etc.
