Hard work: Medical school followed by general surgery residency followed by pediatric surgery fellowship. It is very competitive and you've got to be top notch.

Marathon : First, college with med school prerequisites. Then medical school, 4 years. Then general surgery residency, 5-7 years. Then, pediatric sub-specialty fellowship, 3 years.
