[[Medical School Questions]]?

Question:I don't know what I would like to specialize in yet, but I have a few questions.

1.] How many years of undergraduate school, medical school, internship, etc does it take to be a medical surgeon?

2.] How much does schooling, books, equipments, etc cost for all those years on average?

3.] What are the best universities in California to go to for medical school?

4.] Do people get paid during internship, and if so, how much?

Thank You, for your time.

1) The traditional route is four years of undergrad, four years of medical school, then five years of surgical residency (Intern'ship' is the first year of residency training). There are combined degree program that enable you to work toward your MD degree at the same time you are earning your undergrad, which will take two years off.

2) The least expensive way to go through med school is to attend your state university program and live at home with your parents. If you are able to go that route, you may be able to complete your training and education for under $60K. But the average indebtedness ranges around $150K to a bit over $200K.

3) If you are asking which undergrad school sends the most students to med school, here's where you can get that answer: http://www.aamc.org/data/facts/2006/race...

If you are asking which med school in California is best, that answer depends on which med school will meet your needs the best, so only you can answer that. All medical schools are accredited by the same authority, so any medical school will provide you the education you need. How you perform in that program will determine how good of a physician you are--not the school.

4) Yes, once you enter a residency program you begin earning a stipend.
