The typical route to become a Medical Doctor in the United States is 4 years of “Pre-Med” in your undergraduate degree, 4 years of medical school, and a range of 1-5 years of residency depending on your specialty… that’s potentially 13 years of studying before opening up your first medical practice!
Due to the rigorous journey of becoming a medical doctor, many patients feel intimidated by the “medical world”. For that reason, they will wait until their doctors’ appointments to get the total scoop on their medical condition. That seems completely logical, but with the advent of the Internet and the birth of the Information Age.. patients are increasingly become more informed on the medical decisions they make. While a patient should always receive consultation from their doctor before making any kind of decision as it relates to their health, they should also do their own homework in order to have the most productive conversation possible with their doctor. To achieve this, it’s paramount to understand the preparation, process, and recovery of any medical condition you are undergoing.
