Chiefs lineman Laurent Duvernay-Tardif graduates from McGill University medical school

Chiefs' Laurent Duvernay-Tardif Earns Medical Doctorate from McGill University

Starting guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif graduated from medical school this week, and he is now a doctor. He was selected by the Chiefs in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL Draft, while he was in his third year of medical school.

"I've already started a conversation with the league office and they say that anything is possible", he told the news outlet. Every time the season was over and I was driving back to Montreal, and I was getting back into medical school while everybody else was enjoying their offseason, I was motivating myself with the thought of pushing through because it's going to be worth it in the end.

"He's trying to make me the best player on the field", he said.

At first, he said his teammates questioned his commitment to the game, but it was the Chief's head coach, Andy Reid, who encouraged him to pursue both careers.

He made the quick trip to graduation in Canada but will turn around nearly immediately and head back to Kansas City to rejoin his team-mates for voluntary organised team activities, ESPN reported. "He always gave me the opportunity to come back a little later every spring training to finish my clinical rotation". It's an honour to be a member of that community and I take the responsibility seriously.

This is perhaps one of the most impressive feats that I have ever seen from any football player. Depending on the specialty area, a residency can last anywhere from two to five years. Duvernay-Tardif said he hopes that he will be able to work out a program at McGill, but he's not sure when or how it's going to happen.

"Honestly, I didn't want to dig too deep on that the last few months because I was only focusing on studying", he said. "This is the first time that I feel like I've made it".

"I can start looking at my different options now that this is done". The Chiefs have reached the National Football League playoffs four times over the last five years but are just 1-4 over that span.

"He's a good guy and he's going to be great", he said.
