If you attend college full-time, this will take you 4 years. In order to be competitive for acceptance into medical school you are likely to spend far more than 40 hours per week studying, doing research and volunteering. However, to keep it simple and consistent we will neglect that extra time. After college you will need to attend medical school. In medical school, you are likely to spend about 80 hours per week, for 48 weeks each year, studying and training to become a physician.
