Will they look at your records ((Such as police records/school records, etc)) before hiring you to be a doctor or surgeon? Because I got into a couple of fights through school, as well as had the police called on me multiple times for things I didn't do, because the neighbors hate me. :/ — Asked by Anonymous

Acceptance to medical school is contingent on getting an educational license from the college; part of the requirements for receiving the license is to include a criminal record check. 

I am not exactly familiar with how a record would work but my understanding is that the juvenile record is not quite the same as the adult record. I obviously cannot comment on your own records or to what extent of severity they are, but I do know a few classmates who admit having a record for some minor misdemeanors and small infractions in their past. It seems like it might depend on severity of your charges.
