Allopathic Physician (M.D.)
Students should take the most challenging high school courses (including AP courses) available in science, math, and English.
After three or four year of college, prospective physicians must attend medical school. Undergraduate requirements for admission to all medical schools include one year of basic chemistry, one year of organic chemistry, one year of biology, and one year of physics. Some medical schools also require course work in calculus, English, the humanities, or social science.
Medical school usually includes two years of additional study in both basic and clinical sciences and is followed by a year-long hospital internship. Physicians who want to specialize must then undertake a three-year residency in their specialty.
