Physician Educational Requirements

Becoming a physician will require a few years of school and intensive training that usually extends throughout a physician’s career. First you must complete four years of medical school, then after that you must begin to earn your doctor’s degree of medicine (MD).

After earning your MD, you must then begin your graduate medical education. Depending on what type of medicine you wish to pursue will determine how long this extensive study will last. After completing graduate study and residency training, you will then be required to pass the medical board certification so you can practice medicine legally.
