What do you have to do to become a doctor?

When I graduate High School, I want to go to college to become a doctor. I don’t know if anyone is familiar. with this but I want to start my own practice like a UMCC or IMCC, Urgent Medical Care Center, Immediate Medical Care Center. What, and how much schooling do I have to take to become this type of doctor. Also what is the average salary for a good practice. Thanks!

go to undergrad, better yet, if you have the grades, go straight into a combined undergrad/md program, depending on where you live there might be programs available. if not, go to undergrad, maintain a gpa above 3.5, do well on your mcat, get into med school, do the 7 years required to get your license, (4 school, 3 years residency) and from there you are free to open up your own practice. as for salary it varies greatly by the location of your practice, how many patients you receive. you can choose to work for a hospital for probably around 150k out of residency, opening up your own practice and having a successful one you will be able to make much more, how much is just up to how much work you are willing to put in.
