  • 1. Becoming a Physician/Surgeon Ryan Brady
  • 2. What's the Pay? ● Physicians/Surgeons earn on average about $166,400 per year ● Although, not getting a high enough degree in college can affect your earnings.
  • 3. Education ● The amount of education needed to become a physician /surgeon is fairly high. You need to have a doctorate or a professional degree.
  • 4. Beginning and advancing ● Usually coming out of medical school, one would be an intern or a resident at a hospital before becoming anything else. You can advance by doing well as an intern and learning enough to be a
  • 5. Nature of work ● There are a few traits that physicians/surgeons must have to be successful. They have to be able to concentrate (like in surgery) and they have to have a good work ethic. Some work includes; filling out paperwork, preforming surgery, calling patients, and

Both of my parents work in a hospital so I think that I could learn a lot from them. I have a good work ethic and I know I will try my hardest in school and will complete all of my years to become a doctor.
  • 10. How I can Prepare ● To prepare for this job, I should start researching more about hospital work and what a real surgeon does every day. I could search things online about surgery and I could ask my parents what they think about their jobs and other ways I could prepare. One last thing is that I can take classes in school related to healthcare so that I can have an advantage later in the future.
