Transcript of Surgeons
The doctor must go to college, medical school, and a school for specialized training. The specialized training is for the certain type of surgery you would like to do. Most medical schools require students to have a bachelor's degree, usually with majors in a science such as chemistry or biology. They need this education because without it they wouldn't know all of the information that they need to know and some surgeries may go wrong.
In this picture, there are 2 surgeons working on the patient and the surgical technician passing the doctors the tools they need to complete the surgery.
A surgeons average pay would be about $300,000-$350,000 a year. The amount of money doctors make is often directly proportional to the specialty they practice and where they practice it. In many regions of the world, talent and charisma might be big factors in determining why surgeons make so much.
Technology plays an increasingly important role in today's medicine. Today, hi-tech imaging allows doctors to view internal body structures in amazing detail, while surgery relies heavily on technologies such as lasers, robots, and computers. Artificial devices are commonly used either to replace diseased body parts completely, or to provide assistance to failing organs.
3-D MRI scans, hi-tech imaging, keyhole surgery, laser eye surgery, and a heart pacemaker are all examples of technology involved in many surgeries.
Training for surgeons usually takes a minimum of 13 years.

The cost of a public four-year medical school is about $50,000.
