It’s recommended that would-be hematologists take biology, mathematics, English, chemistry and physics courses in high school, as well as part of their four-year undergraduate program to earn a bachelor’s degree. After earning the bachelor’s degree, the student must complete four years of medical school to earn a Doctor of Medicine degree, or M.D. According to the National Institutes of Health’s Office of Science Education, the M.D. is earned as a result of “at least two academic years of work prior to entrance and a total of at least six academic years of work to complete the degree program, including both prior-required college work and the professional program itself.”
