How to Become a Surgeon

Being a surgeon is one of the most respected professions around the world. Because other people’s lives are literally in your hands on a daily basis, becoming a surgeon is a long and difficult journey. However, if you are an extremely hardworking person and are prepared to handle the rigorous academic curriculum and training, it is possible for you to become a surgeon. Not only will becoming a surgeon allow you to have a positive impact on other people’s lives, but it will also give you a secure, financial future.

Requirements to Become a Surgeon

Let us look at the requirements for becoming a surgeon:

1)     The first requirement for becoming a surgeon is obtaining a BA or BS from a four year university. Contrary to popular belief, students who want to become surgeons, do not have to get a specific degree. Although degrees in biology and chemistry are the most common among future medical school students, you can get into medical school with any kind of undergraduate degree from an accredited four year university.

2)     The next requirement for becoming a surgeon is graduating from medical school. The majority of medical schools require you to complete a four year program before graduating. Your first two years of medical school will be strictly academic, while the second two years will allow you to begin gaining hands-on experience.

3)     In addition to four years of undergraduate school and four years of medical school, the next requirement to become a surgeon is successfully completing a residency. The length and type of residency you complete will depend on the type of surgeon that you want to become. For almost all fields of surgery, you can expect your residency to last between 6-8 years.

4)     Finally, depending on the type of surgeon that you are going to become, you will need to obtain at least one medical license and board certification. Your medical license will be obtained during medical school, and board certifications are generally obtained after completing a residency.

 

Instructions on How to Become a Surgeon

1)     The first step in the path to becoming a surgeon is obtaining a degree from a four year university. If you are still in high school, you should focus on keeping a high GPA, participating in a well-rounded variety of extracurricular activities and applying to as many quality colleges as possible.

2)     If you are already in college, although there is no specific major you need to pursue, there are specific courses that you need to complete (such as biology and organic chemistry). You can find out what courses are required by every medical school by looking at the Medical School Admissions Requirements (commonly called the MSAR). You should be able to purchase this book at your university, and it is also available for purchase online. Additionally, you should also focus on participating in a well-rounded variety of extracurricular activities.

3)     During the second half of your time as an undergraduate student, you will need to decide whether or not you are ready to take the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT). If you plan on attending medical school after graduating, you will need to take the test in your third or fourth year as an undergraduate. However, if you are going to wait for a few years to begin medical school, you can also wait to take the MCAT. Regardless of when you decide to take the MCAT, it is an extremely difficult test, so you will need to devote a significant amount of time for preparing for it.

4)     Once you have taken the MCAT and received your undergraduate degree (or are getting close to graduating and receiving your degree), you will need to start applying to medical schools. Getting into medical school is an extremely difficult process, so you will want to apply to a wide variety of medical schools. Medical schools will look at your performance as an undergraduate student, MCAT score, letters of recommendation, extracurricular activities, and if you are chosen as a potential medical school student, you will also be required to go through at least one interviewin person.

5)     After you are accepted into medical school, you will dedicate your next four years towards graduating from medical school. During medical school, you will need to pass three exams to obtain your medical license. The three part exam is called the United States Medical Licensing Exam. The first part is taken after you complete the first half of medical school, while the other two parts are taken towards the end of medical school.

6)     At the end of medical school, you will apply for a surgery residency in the speciality you want to pursue. Since all medical school students follow the same curriculum, you will really not begin to become a surgeon until you start your residency.

7)     Although you will be a licensed doctor when you begin your residency, it will last for 6-8 years and so, you will begin at the bottom and progress towards becoming a surgeon through hard work and hands-on experience.

8)     When you finish your residency, you will be eligible to take your board certification exam. By passing your board certification after a minimum of fourteen years of gruelling work, you will officially become a surgeon!

What Are the Different Types of MBAs Available?

In today’s world, the Master’s in Business Administration is one of the best degrees a person can have. The fields that most Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) graduates go into are at least average growing jobs, if not faster than average growing fields, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In essence, having an MBA means that you have mastered business practices and have all the knowledge and skill sets to be successful in that arena. Since the United States is a capitalist country, there will always be a demand for people that know all the ins and outs of the business world.

 

Why people get an MBA

Most MBA’s entered their studies with one goal in mind: to be successful and increase their abilities to earn a high salary. In the modern world, money makes the world go round, and MBAs want as much of it as they can get- and who can blame them? People that have an MBA earn a substantial amount more on average than other low-level employees and employees that do not have an MBA in the business field.

 

What is possible with an MBA?

Usually an MBA is required for senior level and management positions in the business field, so most MBA graduates tend to enter the realm of business management or even business ownership. Odds are, if you work in a business of some kind, your boss has an MBA- or your boss’ boss has an MBA. The interesting thing is that since the skills and education that comes with an MBA is so versatile, an MBA graduate can pretty much enter any sector or industry in the world and still be successful and relevant to their skills.

 

Different types of MBA degrees

There are a host of options available to MBA students in terms of degree choices. Since the degrees are so versatile, it does not really matter which specialization they focus on, but it does help if they have a specific career path in mind prior to graduation. Most MBA students tend to combine a couple of the degrees into one cumulative study and degree. Here are the different MBAs offered at most schools:

  •           Accounting
  •           Business Management
  •           E-Business or E-Commerce
  •           Economics
  •           Entreprenuership
  •           Finance
  •           Global Management
  •           Human Resources Management
  •           Information Systems
  •           Marketing
  •           Operations Management
  •           Strategic and Risk Management
  •           Technology Management

 

The importance of choosing the right school for an MBA

The educational criteria for most business schools does not vary much from school to school, and because of this the prestige of the school you got an MBA from holds a lot of weight in the business world. In the business world, you are worth your reputation, and thus being successful at a prestigious and respected school tends to put you heads and shoulders above the competition when entering the job market with an MBA degree. The most prestigious business schools are Harvard, the Kellogg School of Management and the Wharton Business School, among many others.

Why college students should work to achieve balance in their busy schedules

It’s Friday evening, and your phone is buzzing constantly with texts, notifications, and plain old-fashioned phone calls from people inquiring about your weekend plans.

One of your friends is begging you to join them at that cheap pizza joint for a slice or two, while another pal wants you to be their “plus one” to a house party in the neighborhood. Everyone on Twitter and Facebook seem to be revving up for a crazy weekend of partying and nonstop fun, free of classes and collegiate worries until at least Monday morning.

But you’re not really feeling it this weekend. For one reason or another, you’re over the constant partying and insanity of a Friday night in a college town. You ignore the requests of your friends, you avert your eyes from the constant stream of anticipatory status updates, and you hunker down in your place for a quiet night of relaxation. You’re ready for some reflection, not reckless recreation

And that’s okay.

I say “that’s okay” because I’ve been there before. I can sympathize with feeling burnt out and altogether despondent about the late-late nights and the foolish spending and everything else that comes standard with those kinds of youthful indiscretions. It’s all part and parcel of the college experience, but that doesn’t mean that you have to follow through the party motions every time 5pm on a Friday rolls around.

The desire to celebrate like mad during the weekend will come and go, because it’s often a last resort when you have nothing better to do. Sure, it’s fun to have a crazy night of fun with your friends and let off a little steam after a long week of classes and studying, but it’s not the cure-all for whatever ails you. Sometimes you need to spend some time by yourself, for yourself in order to ease your psychic woes.

There is any number of reasons to stay in on a Friday night—you’re not feeling well, you’ve reached your financial limit for the month, there’s a midterm looming ahead, you’re tired of your friends, you want to spend quality time with a significant other, or just by yourself—none of which should make you feel shameful for doing so.

For example, some of my most productive studying was done on a Friday night, done in practically vacant libraries where I coincidentally met some of my best friends. I bonded with some great people over a shared desire to live our lives the way we wanted to, not the way dictated by social norms in college. There’s no reason to feel ashamed when you have something better to do—in fact you should wear it as a badge of pride that you aren’t constrained to the typical party schedule. Live your life on your own terms, not those set by the latest college movie.

You shouldn’t feel guilty for skipping the weekend festivities, but that’s not to say that your friends will try to make you feel guilty. Your friendly will inevitably complain and whine about your absence, marking you as a spinster or a genuine party-pooper. They’ll get over it, and you’ll get to do what you want. Everyone wins, and you’ll probably feel like you spent your weekend better after you hear your friends’ stories about how they spent theirs.

College students, does this article strike any chords with you? I’d like to know how you feel about it!

How to Avoid Gaining the Freshmen 15

You’ve graduated from high school and you’re forging out on your own for the first time ever. You’ve got a dorm room, a cool new roommate, a semester full of classes, and parties on the schedule every weekend. But college isn’t all fun and games, and that early excitement can turn to dismay as the all-nighters, whether they’re from studying or being out late drinking with friends, stress from challenging classes, and a general lack of any healthy activity leads to more than a few extra pounds around your waistline. The freshmen 15 is something that every freshman has to face, and whether you succumb to it or fight it is up to you. Some ways that you can combat gaining the unwanted freshmen 15 are:

  1. 1.      Don’t give in to late-night munchies. Late night runs to favorite fast food joints and 24-hour diners are a staple in college, especially after a night spent out at the bars or a party with your friends. As tempting as it can be to hit up one of these places for an order of cheese fries or a plate full of tacos, try to resist and just head home instead. Those extra calories are unnecessary anyway and will be doing you no favors, so just drink a big glass of water and call it a night.
  2. 2.      Try to establish an exercise routine. Most colleges have a campus rec center available to students with plenty of exercise equipment, group exercise classes, and fitness challenges. Take advantage of this a couple days a week and try to establish an exercise routine that you can commit to. Getting in a good workout won’t just keep you in shape, it’ll also help you be sharper in your classes and help you meet new people.
  3. 3.      Walk to class. Instead of taking campus transportation to go from class to class walk to them instead. This is a great way to learn your way around campus and to get in some extra exercise. Plus carrying your backpack around campus will help you get in even more of a workout as you walk to different areas around the school.
  4. 4.      Keep your dorm room stocked with healthy treats. Having a dorm room full of candy, chips, and ramen noodles may mean that you don’t have to walk down to the cafeteria to get food, but it also isn’t going to do anything for you as far as staying in shape is concerned. Instead keep your dorm room stocked with healthy snacks that you can toss in your backpack and take with you to class. Choosing healthy options is much easier when you already have them with you.
  5. 5.      Get involved in intramural sports. Intramural sports are a great way to get involved at school, get in some exercise each week, and meet new friends. It’s easy to let alcohol be the way you interact with friends, but by doing intramural sports you can shift the focus to doing something healthy while still hanging out.

While the freshmen 15 are a dreaded part of going to college, they don’t have to be a part of your college experience. Keep yourself active and be mindful of your eating habits and you’ll find yourself in better shape and more alert and energized all around.

How to get best Finance Education

Finance is a huge part of any business, small or big. Entrepreneurs and businessmen measure a major chunk of their success in business on the basis of this factor. With inflation at its peak and the unstable global business environment we all have come to accept as part and parcel of running a business set-up these days, more and more people have started realizing the importance of good financial planning and managing funds needed towards business. This may be a crucial reason for the emphasis people put on proper management training. Of course, going through this type of training also needs a substantial investment, if a reputable institute of consultant is in the picture. Training courses at institutes in commercial capitals such as Dubai are now in the spotlight for their up to date training programs that are well-designed and produced desired results for the clientele.

 

The audiences for these courses are primarily corporate, working adults that aspire to start a business at some point in their lives, stay at home businesswomen or businessmen, entrepreneurs, investors and businessmen. But this type of education is not just essential for people involved in business. The average person should also know the intricacies of finance to lead a life that is free from financial stress. In fact such education has a much bigger impact than personal financial stability. A large population of financially educated consumers can make a significant difference in the country’s economy. Financially educated consumers can help ensure that the financial sector of the country makes an effective contribution to the economy, and in turn help its economic growth and reduction in poverty. This can also make sure that in a long run the population of the country saves enough to support their retirement without being in debt or resulting in bankruptcy.

 

In organizations and business finance education is simply vital. It includes deep analysis of the cost of capital, capital budgeting, designing the optimum capital structure for the business, effective utilization of the financial resources, planning the sources of incomes and resources to be used, and so on. It is an advanced study, which needs proper guidance. Many businessmen feel that this can be done by reading a couple of finance related books or talking to a few friends who are successful in their respective businesses, but they are far from the goal. Discussing or reading is not the same as learning and understanding. Business and management training institutes specialize in doing the latter. They have courses that show you the important role finance plays in making your business successful and empower you with tools that can be used to benefit your business further.

 

There are a wide range of financial training courses available throughout the world. In fact, you can easily run a search for such training programs offered at institutes in and around your city. There are many institutes that even offer online solutions like short courses that can be done through online portals. These courses are cheaper as compared to full-time one-to-one programs, while the value such programs provide is debatable. Many people have suffered big losses during the recession and are still affected by its aftereffects. These individuals may feel that they need finance education but have financial restraints and cannot afford to splurge on a full-time course through a good institute. In such cases, it may be best to save up and do the course when you have the money. Settling for a below standard program can be unwise. After all, it is your whole financial future that depends on it, so why not go in for the best.

4 Most Expensive Medical Schools in the US

For anyone that has already considered going to medical school, the following statement will come as no surprise: medical school is one of the most expensive educational endeavors that exist. The price of medical school is much higher than the price of most other types of educations because of the specialized nature of the education and the profession, as well as the high salary and the demands and pressures that come with being a medical professional. There is just about no room for error in the medical profession, and because of this, it is not a job made for just anyone. Rather, it is a job made for someone with a streak of perfectionism, a little bit of an ego, as well as a drive and work ethic that is far above the average person. Not only does it take a lot of drive and dedication to be a medical professional, or even a medical student, it also takes a lot of cash- especially for the 4 schools that are listed below.

 

1. Tufts University (Massachusetts)

Tufts University is one of the most prestigious private medical schools in the country, and because of that prestige it is also one of the most expensive. Their total enrollment for the medical program is well under 1,000 students, which shows that competition that is present at the school. The average tuition for a medical student in their program is just about $54,000 a year for a full-time student, which makes it the most expensive private medical school in the country. Yet, despite its prestige and cost, the medical school at Tufts does not rank very high for research and primary care subjects.

 

2. Temple University (Pennsylvania)

Coming in as the second most expensive medical school in the country is a surprise for Temple because they rank pretty low in most of the medical education rankings. But, their tuition for a full-time student is right around $54,000 a year as well. Also, Temple uses both in and out of state tuition, so the numbers may be slightly inflated, as the in state tuition is actually much lower for their medical program.

 

3. Columbia University (New York)

Columbia is one of the best colleges in the entire country, and perhaps even in the entire world. The reputation of this school goes well beyond the medical world, but it still holds a prominent place in the medical industry as it is the 8th best medical school for research and lab work, according to rankings from U.S. News. The average tuition at Columbia University is just under $53,000 a year for a full-time student.

 

4. New York University (New York)

Yet another New York school makes it onto the list of the most expensive private medical schools in the country. Their rankings in research and primary care are not very impressive, but that does not affect that fact that their full-time tuition is a little bit more than $52,000 a year for a medical student.

a career in law enforcement

If you are considering a career in law enforcement, regardless of whether it is a police officer career or some other area of criminal justice, you will find it beneficial to look over the options that are available to you. These may include looking at the type of education that is available through a career finder course or perhaps even looking at the amount of money that you are going to be able to make once you enter the field. That will help you to make your choice in many cases, as there is going to be a difference in how much money you will be able to earn as a court reporter or corrections officer when you compare that with a probation officer salary (Probation Officer Salary by Search by Degree). Of course, that is just one example but it certainly is something that you would want to consider.

You should also consider the type of education that is necessary in order to have the career of your choosing. Obviously, there are going to be differences in the type of education needed when you compare becoming a legal secretary to becoming a police officer but in almost every case, having the advanced education is going to work to your benefit. Not only are you going to want to have an education that is specific to the career that you choose, you would also want to consider the possibilities of taking some online classes or taking classes in your local area. That will help to make it more convenient for you to get your degree and to land the job that you want.

Common Mistakes College Students Make

College is the period of time where a lot of people find out who they truly are, and this self-realization is usually the result of many ups and downs throughout their years spent at school. Since college kids are typically out on their own for the first time in their adult lives, college becomes a way for them to test their limits and do all the things that they may have been forbidden from doing before they left for school. The majority of college students will make the same mistakes as their peers throughout their college career, and these five are the most common:

Skipping classes: It’s almost inevitable that once you get to college you’re going to skip a class or two – after all, there’s no parent there forcing you to get up and go to class! And while missing a class here or there probably won’t be detrimental to your college career, getting into a habit of skipping classes on a weekly basis can be.

Thinking you don’t have to study for classes: Many students skate through high school with little studying, hitting the books the night before a big test, cramming for one night, and still acing the test. However the curriculum that college courses cover is usually much more in depth than a high school class, and putting off the studying until the night before can result in a failing grade.

Trying to do too much at once: Where some kids in college slack off, others think that they’re invincible, and try to pile way too much on their plate. Just because you can take six classes a semester doesn’t mean you should, and taking too many classes can leave you with the same poor grades that skipping classes can. Make sure your workload isn’t unreasonably hard before signing up for your courses.

Being too afraid to ask for help: You should never be afraid to ask a professor for help, and yet many college students are. The sheer size of college classes alone can be intimidating and deter kids from seeking help, as is the desire to get out of class as soon as it’s over. However taking an extra 20 minutes to ask for help can be the difference in understanding material or not.

Taking out credit cards: Credit card companies work hard to lure college students in with attractive deals like “no interest for the first six months”, and many fall into this trap. However what they don’t tell you is that interest skyrockets after that six months is up, and college students can end up paying more in interest fees than what they owe on the actual credit card.

While college is definitely a learning experience, not all lessons have to be learned the hard way. By avoiding these common mistakes you can have a much more enjoyable and successful college career.

What to Look for in an Online College

If you’ve made the decision to go back to school, but can’t make the time commitment that a traditional university requires, then finding an online university may be the perfect solution. Choosing an online college is a big decision to make, and is one that requires plenty of thought and research beforehand. There are a lot of different factors to look at when you start comparing different schools, and these five things are some of the most important to consider before making your final decision:

Accreditation:  It’s important to find an accredited university because it shows that the school is a legitimate college to attend. Being accredited means that an independent party has come and evaluated the school and found it to be a good school that offers a quality education.

Tuition Costs:  Are the fees reasonable? Are they comparable to other similar colleges? Are they up front with their fees? Be on the lookout for any hidden fees or costs that seem unnecessarily high. You don’t want to end up overpaying for your degree.

Degree Programs:  Does the college offer the degree plan you’re interested in obtaining? Is it known for having a particularly good degree program? Research several different schools so that you can find one that has a good reputation for the degree program you’re pursuing. With so many options for online universities, there’s bound to be one that fits your needs.

Positive Reviews:  Are other students happy with their experience with the university, or were they upset over the quality of education that they received? Seek out as many reviews as possible so that you can get a good feel for the college.

Graduation Rates:  Does the school boast high graduation success? You’ll want to find a college that is known for its high graduation rates because it shows that they are invested in the success of their students.

Be selective when you  begin your search for an online college to attend; there are plenty of schools out there, so you should make sure that all of your needs are being met and that you aren’t settling for less than what you deserve. Your education is a huge investment in your future, so you want to make sure that you receive the best schooling possible.
