I aspire to be a neurosurgeon but not all colleges offer neurosurgery or neuroscience as a major. Including these what are some choices I have as a major to be a succesful neurosurgeon.
Answer by eri
Not all colleges offer neuroscience, but no colleges offer a neurosurgery major. Major in anything and take the premed classes in bio, chem, physics, math, and English. Keep your college GPA well over 3.5 and do very well on the MCATs. Med school is another 4 years after that, followed by 5 years of general surgical residency, followed by 5 years of fellowship in neurosurgery. This will be at 4 different schools/hospitals so you can start at any 4-year college or university.
