To become a neurosurgeon, you must begin by choosing the right undergraduate degree. While there is no prescribed course to take for this, it is recommended that you concentrate on advanced biological sciences.
You must complete a bachelor’s degree with pre-med required courses like biochemistry, microbiology, or human anatomy. Since most medical schools require a minimum GPA of 3.5, you have to be one of the best students in your graduating class.
While in junior year, you would have to take the Medical College Admission Test (MCATS). The purpose of this exam is to allow medical schools to assess your skills through a series of multiple-choice questions. Then you must submit your application by mail or online through the Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC) and the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine.
