You should keep in mind that you need to make a lot of sacrifice and in the process you may possibly suffer some side effects like major brain damage secondary to exhaustion, dehydration, and excessive stress as demonstrated by the gang during our graduation ceremony....:) :)

Next is one year of internship followed by four years of residency and two years of fellowship! Those are the years for you to work 100+ hours/week while being paid minimal wage for the first 40 hours only! No overtime applies here. Hey it's your education...And let's not forget that you need to spend tons of additional time for studying but that's only if you need to pass your boards! And you don't really have to pass your boards except if you want a job! And with the way the health care system is going, a job is not an option anymore! So there you go...You saved yourself all that extra effort of studying. So you really should feel lucky and be grateful rather than complain..And if finally after a zillion years you made it all the way and you are finally ready to reap all these rewards of being a radiologist, what happens? You ...die !!!! :) :) :)

All kidding aside, here's how to become a radiologist. Radiology is a VERY competitive specialty in high demand and only the top of the top have a good chance to make it. It is lots of hard work and very long years but the end result is quite worth it. To become a radiologist, one must have a great high school GPA and an impressive CV. This opens the door to getting admitted to a top college for a 4 year bachelor degree program at then end of which one sits for the nationally standardized medical school admission test. It will take both stellar performance throughout college and the acing of the admission exam to land a spot in a top medical school. Those that really shine during these next 4 years will eventually have the top chances of getting into an accredited radiology residency, a process that takes 5 years and culminates into one becoming a radiologist. So now you can say that you know how to become a radiologist.
