Question: do i like have to work my butt off to be one? i hear you have to be very good to be one. im not in it for the money though they do make more than surgeons. but i only want to be one because i actually like learning about diseases and the body. and i mean learning about everything about the body. science is my favorite subject. i love it love it love it. and i figure its good to find out what you want to be while you're a freshman. that's mee. so, i have been lazy lately. i have like 3c's :// and being lazy shows. and i now know that if i want to be successful in life i can not and i repeat CAN NOT put off my homework and go on myspace instead. i told my self that i want a change in my life. i want to change. and i know it will take a while to "change," but i really need to. help and show my any way possible i can change. besides being lazy in school. i am working on that. well trying. PLEASE? and what do you have to go through to be an anesthesiologist or a cardiovascular surgeon? im in highschool.

Yes, you have to work your butt off. Not just in college and medical school and residency, but pretty much for the rest of your life. In high school, if you're not getting A's (maybe an occasional B) in hard classes without working too hard, you're not likely to make it into med school. Laziness doesn't cut it. Pick another career.

Sheryll Originally Answered: which risk factor for developing Cardiovascular disease is BEYOND a person's control?
Risk factors beyond a persons control mean things that are inherited. For example you cannot control your family history, your race, your gender, cogential defects (birth defects that are present when you are born). If you have a family history known for heart problems then this risk factor that is beyond your control. Also some races are more at risk for heart problems than others, so if you are one of these races you cannot control this risk factor, because it is inherited. However Risk factors such as diet, smoking, and in most cases are environment can be controlled. For example we choose what we want to eat, and if we want to smoke or not. Those are controllable risk factors. The environment can also be controlled also, but that varies from person to person, depending if they are in a occupation that they are exposed to toxins. But more likely this would cause respiratory problems which later could develop into cardiovascular problems.

Losing twenty pounds, becoming a low-fat vegetarian, and running twenty to thirty miles a week has does wonders for my lipid levels. My doctor is very pleased with my cholesterol numbers. My LDLs are really low and my HDLs are really high, because I exercise, eat right, and keep my weight down. I wasn't all that heavy to begin with, but what I did made a huge difference. I'm 5' 8" and I weighed 160. Now I'm 140 and I keep moving. My doctor tells me to keep it up. Every little bit helps a lot.

first, you'll have to work on your writing. from the way you put your yahoo question together, it seems that it is very disjointed and distracted. C's are ok, but don't continue this. When you say you're a freshman, I assume you're a freshman in college? if so, find a place with no internet, no friends, no distractions, and study at least 1-2 hours a day. just set it as a goal - you'll find something to review or preview. Both anesthesiologists and surgeons need to graduate from medical school. medical school is extremely competitive, tough to get in, tough to get out. make sure you understand everything you need to know for your mcats. they're not easy. your school should offer free mcat practice tests. do well in your science and mathematics courses - but don't slack on anything else. essay writing is critical. of course you could always go to those medical schools in jamaica or phillipines. you will not be trained as well nor will you find jobs quite as easily though. now if you're a freshman in highschool - you have no idea what you want to do until you put a few more years under your belt. i've changed my idea of what i wanted to do more time between freshman year of college and senior year of college then you would think. and i continue to fine tune what i want to do while going through graduate school. however, if you insist, make sure you do well enough to get into a good college. if possible, get into a top tier school and take all the classes required to do a premed degree.

First you have to get through college. Those classes that you have Cs in? You might want to consider retaking them. Medical schools will tell you what the average college GPA was for their incoming freshman class, and it's not uncommon for an incoming class to have a 4-year college GPA of 3.85 and higher. Obviously the next step is medical school. That will be followed by an internship (1 year). To be an anesthesiologist takes a 3-year residency beyond the internship. To be a cardiovascular surgeon takes a surgical residency of 5 to 7 years, and then an additional surgical fellowship in cardiovascular surgery. To find out what you need to get into medical school, look at the web sites of the med schools you are most likely to apply to and find out exactly what their admission requirements are. You can pretty much count on needing 2 semesters of general (inorganic) chemistry, 2 semesters of organic chemistry, 1 semester of biochemisty, and possibly 1 or 2 more semesters of chemistry. You'll need 2 semesters of physics, and math that takes you through at least 2 semesters of calculus. You'll need biology classes that include 2 semesters of biology, 1 or 2 semesters of microbiology, and quite likely at least 2 semesters of comparative anatomy plus additional biology courses. And of course you'll need a minimum of 2 semesters of English comp, plus courses in literature, history, religion, the arts, psychology, sociology, and ideally some advanced courses in understanding human behavior through these various social science and humanities disciplines. Right now, don't worry so much about the internship, residency, fellowships, and the choice of specializing in anesthesia or surgery. You've got to get INTO medical school first. Once you start your clinical rotations, you may decide that some other medical specialty is more appealing. So contact the med schools, get their requirements. Talk to your college's pre-med adviser. And get busy. You're going to be competing against the best and the brightest to get that med school seat, and you have to convince the admissions committee that you're one of those best and brightest, too. You can do it. :-)

Marlee Originally Answered: why would someone want to be a brain surgeon?
Constant learning and stimulation Constant feeling of improving ones self Keeping busy- some people want to work work work, and don't enjoy having loads of free time Brain surgeon is a prestigious title, and considered the "best" of the "best" by most New techniques are often learned and practiced It'd be fun! Some people have a genuine interest in the human body (and neurosurgeons in specific likely find the brain the most interesting, like a puzzle) Saving lives is rewarding and exciting There are countless other reasons, but those are off the top of my head. Oh, and money of course, It pays extremely well.
