Forum Name: Becoming a Medical Student

Question: Process

Anonymous - Mon Jan 13, 2003 10:53 pm

I am interrested in becoming a clinical doctor. What is the process of post-secondary education that one would go through in order to achieve this? I am still in high-school, so I still have a while to go, however, I am trying to plan my future now.
