I'm hoping that someone here is/was a medical student at one point, or knows someone who was. ;o) I'm no longer anywhere near a University, or else I'd just bust into the career center and ask there.

I'm thinking about going into opthamology. I finished my undergrad in May (bachelor's in psychology) without any idea of what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. Now I'm thinking maybe I want to do opthamology. :o) But the problem is, I don't know where to start. The American Board of Opthamology and Wikipedia say that the education requires a bachelor's (done), 4-5 years of medical school and 3-4 years of specialized training. My question is, what do they mean by 4-5 years of medical school? Is it a general medical degree or a specialized opthamology medical degree? Can I choose any medical school, or does it have to be one that offers a particular degree?

Anyone have any information that might help me on my quest for information of what exactly I need to do to maybe become an opthamologist? :o)

It's sad - I know what one does, but not how I could become one.
