Not heard of height restrictions ( as in too tall, not short) for many jobs except fighter pilots in cramped cockpits, so I think you'll be OK!

Mmmmm...the twins....(both tall, dark-haired, soon-to-be surgeons). At least 6'1, I'd say, and delicious to go with it!

Never heard of a surgeon who's too tall - you can always get one of those tables that pumps up higher so that you can reach things a bit better. But if you do that the rest of your operating team would have to be tall aswell, otherwise they won't be able to see what's happening!! Good luck with it though...

I bloody hope not

I'm 6'5 and I hope to go on to be a surgeon, halfway through my medical degree now

Also, one of our consultant surgeons is absolutely immense.

Your height shouldn't get in the way of what career you want to do.
Go for it.....

Unless you want to be a RAF pilot or Air Hostess, that is.

Well if a six foot man can become a surgeon, why can't you?

For some reason most surgeons are tall.

And all operating tables are hight adjustable. I'd worry more about grades, uni course etc rather than your hight.
