Question by Bethany: How many years of college do you need to become a doctor?
I’m talking about everything all together: How many years would it take of college, training, and residence to become a family physician? I know I’m only 13, but I’m curious.
Answer by eri
4 years of college, 4 years of medical school, and 3 years of residency before you can get a job on your own. Only the last 3 years are you getting paid, and not too much. Family physician is one of the least-well-paid medical specialties, so hopefully you’re aiming for that because you like the field. It still pays well, but much less than other medical fields.
