High School

Gastroenterologists, like other physicians, must complete eight years of education beyond high school-four years of undergraduate studies and four years of medical school. To begin preparing for the advanced education necessary, while in high school take college preparatory courses, including mathematics, biology, chemistry, physiology, health, and psychology. Also take English and speech courses to hone your communication skills.
