How To Become An Obstetrician

Become an obstetrician requires years of dedication and commitment to make it through undergraduate college, medical college, and then an additional 4 years of a OB/GYN residency program, making it a total of 12 years of study before an individual can practice as a licensed obstetrician. Only the individual willing to make this commitment of time, energy and study can answer whether or not an obstetrician’s salary is a fair one. But with more and more women choosing to delay pregnancy until after 30 years of age and the risks increasing for more complications developing from pregnancies at this stage of life, the demand for qualified obstetricians remains strong.
