In order to be a gynecologist, a person must complete years of rigorous schooling and education. First of all, a student must graduate from high school with high marks. This student must then take a pre-med track during their undergraduate career. Most aspiring gynecologists major in fields like Biology, Women's Studies, Chemistry, and Exercise Science. It is imperative that an aspiring gynecologist maintain a high GPA during their undergraduate years, as well as perform well on the MCAT. Next, one needs to be admitted to and complete medical school. After medical school, the doctor must complete their internship and residency, which can take anywhere from three to eight additional years, on top of the eight years of post-secondary education already completed in undergraduate and medical school. It is a good idea for the doctor to then become board certified by completing the requirements laid out by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
