General Practitioners

High School

High school students who plan to become physicians should take a college preparatory curriculum that includes history, social studies, math, and foreign languages. Specific high school classes that will be helpful to prospective physicians include health, biology, chemistry, physics, and physiology. English and speech classes are also useful because doctors need to develop good communication skills, both written and oral.
