To become a neurosurgeon, one must: graduate from medical school (four years); complete a one-year surgical internship program, to build fundamental clinical skills, and complete seven years in a neurosurgical residency program. During residency training, neurosurgeons are trained in all aspects of neurosurgery, including the cerebrovascular system, the spine and spinal cord, trauma, tumours, pain management and pediatric surgery. Residents must complete a minimum of 60 months of training in the neurological sciences, with at least 36 of those months devoted to clinical neurosurgery and a minimum of three months devoted to clinical neurology. 8 years of education beyond high school and 3 to 8 additional years of internship and residency. In the end, it will take about 18 years to become neurosurgeon. The minimal grade average is around 3.6 though may achieve higher.

First part of this drastic journey is to finish secondary school, after that move on to post secondary education. You must finish 4 years in university and then move on to medical school. After that your are placed in an internship program for approximately a year, and then finally a residency for six to eight years. Along this course you must complete the MCAT’s and the SAT’s.

Money needed
Studying Required Welcome To The Brain Game ! Did I Hear Someone Say Money Money Money ? Salary: $300,000 to $500,000

The thought maybe of how much money you will need

If you are living by yourself may cost more then living in school dorms
