you'll want to go to a University with Pre-Med program. but a warning though, MD schools are VERY competitive. im talking you need to maintiain a gpa no lower than 3.6 to be a average applicant (3.8 to be very competitive), a Math/Science GPA of 3.6 (again 3.8 to be competitive) an MCAT score of 28-35 the average test score is 24. you need 2 semesters of General Biology, 2 semesters of General Chemistry, 2 semesters of Physics, and 2 semesters of Organic Chem. a semester schedule of 2 sciences one math and two filler classes equaling 17-19 hrs also you need to have volunteer hrs (actually doing things not sitting at a desk) and shadowing hours with different Doctors over different specialities all while making A's in hard college courses. this isn't for the feint of heart you have to apply yourself and be GOOD at science and math. and by good I mean REALLY GOOD.

after 4 years of that, and your grades are good enough to apply you apply for medical school and IF you get accepted you spend 4 more years in medical school, then 2-5 years in a residency making a fraction of a doctors salary then your a full fledged doctor with $200,000 of debt from medical school alone
trust me, im a premed student lol ive done my research
