What to study to become ENT specialist . Is mbbs is required

Manan Pareek 11th Jun, 2019

HI Zill Gohil,

A four-year medical degree, followed by a five-year ENT residency program is the primary educational requirements for a profession as a board-certified ENT Specialist. However, the educational path begins by receiving a Bachelor's Degree from an accredited college or university. For future, ENT specialists building foundational science and interaction skills are often the focus of core educational course study while in college.

Educational Path of an ENT Specialist

Earn a bachelor's degree.

A bachelor’s degree is the first higher-education step toward becoming an ENT Specialist. Although candidates complete a broad range of undergraduate majors, students should complete the courses the found most medical schools require as prerequisites: biology, physics, and chemistry, along with written and oral communication course study.

During their undergraduate degree, students wanting to gain an edge in the competitive medical school application pool would benefit from taking career and advanced education oriented steps like joining pre-medical organizations, completing community service, shadowing physicians and studying for the MCAT (Medical College Admissions Test). Before graduating, a candidate should apply to medical school. Medical school is a four-year process, leading to an advanced degree in the medical field, either a M.D. or D.O.

Complete a medical school program

During medical school, future ENT Specialists spend their first year primarily in the classroom absorbing knowledge in areas like anatomy, histology, pathology, biochemistry, psychology, ethics and preparing for Objective Structured Clinical Exams. The second year, while still in the classroom, is more clinically focused. The third and fourth year medical students will transition into clinical rotations and gain exposure to a wide range of potential specializations.
