The competitiveness of the course option, and also the specificity of the medical field, makes entrance to universities to study medicine and surgery extremely challenging. Although, those who want to take the course have not been discouraged by this. What to do first and what to expect Becoming a doctor, you must devote a significant amount of time and effort to your studies. This will take at least 5-6 years at the institute, followed by 2 years of residence to earn a narrow speciality.
