That's a good career to get into. Surgeons will always be needed.

Surgeons must meet a set of challenging education requirements.

These generally include four years of undergraduate study, four years of medical school leading to a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degree, and three to eight years of surgical residency at a hospital.

So You're looking at around 12 years before you can operate on somebody.
