Physicians

The physician is required to devote many years to study before being admitted to practice. Interested high school students should enroll in a college preparatory course, and take courses in English, languages, the humanities, social studies, and mathematics, in addition to courses in biology, chemistry, and physics. You should take advanced placement or honors classes and strive to achieve high grades, ideally graduating in the top of your class.
