Hi everyone, I was wondering what courses do I need to take if I major to be an ER doctor and minor in Psychology? How long do you think it will take until I get paid? I'd appreciate any information. Well, have a great day and God Bless!

It is good hear that someone wants to become a doctor. I am not an emergency room physician, so I do not know first-hand what is needed or required to apply to such a training program. In general, to apply to a medical school, one needs to complete all of the require pre-med courses at an university or college. Once in medical school, then the basic curriculum is needed. You may want to talk with emergency room doctors to learn more specifics.
