I would like to apologize in advance if my inquiry is inappropriate for this
newsgroup.  I have been lurking for some time but have not come across a
charter or FAQ.

I am a highschool student doing research for a 'career research' project.
The idea is to research a career and prepare a report and presentation.
Since my early childhood, I've always been interested in medicine,
specifically fields pertaining to neuroscience, and my dream is to one day
have a career in neurosurgery.  Naturally, I chose to research neurosurgery
for my project.

The following are some of the points I need to explore in my report (approx
2000 words)

-What are the high school requirements for the career?
-What post-secondary education and training is required?
-What is the cost of the program or training?
-How long is the program?
-Does it include work experience?
-Will the program help you find employment after completion?
-What other requirements are there?

-How many jobs will be opening in this field in the next 5 years?
-What is involved in this career?--What is a typical day/week in this job
-What is the average income for someone starting out in this field?
-What is the expected income for someone who has been doing the job for 5 or
so years?

-What are the advancement opportunities?
-What careers are related to this one? How easy would it be to transfer into
a similar field?

Naturally, I don't expect to be spoonfed in this group, but any help or
direction regarding where to do my research would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
