The first step is finishing up your bachelors degree, being sure to take the required medical school courses (1 year of English, 1 year of general chemistry, 1 year of organic chemistry, 1 year of biology, and 1 year of physics). Before you apply you'll also have to take the medical college admissions test (MCAT). Most students begin applying to medical school about a year before they want to go to school, so usually the summer the year before you graduate. Medical school is four years. After medical school comes residency, the length of which depends on what you decide to specialize in.

Working with patients is fun, but can be a challenge sometimes. Everyone expects something a little different, so it's important to be able to adapt when talking to different people.
