He wasn't 40 when the first movie was filmed though.
And people often look older or younger than their real age.
The point is he was around 40.

Yes, but since the start we have talked about "looks" and as I said people many times don't look their age.
He always looked around his late 20s - early 30s to me.

He's wrinkle free and would probably look even younger if he shaved. Or had his hair back

His being a trained surgeon isn't relevent to how long the training would take. The training takes the same amount of time for everyone. That's why people who have gone through OCS are called "90 Day Wonders".

The point is he was around 40.
As stated the actors age is not reflective of character's age. Kirk was 22 to 25 years old in the film while Pine was 27-28 while filming it. Uhura was probably 19 to 21 years of age in the film while Saldana was 29-30 when filming it.

Nana Visitor was 10 years older than her character Kira Nerys was. Actors play younger all the time like the cast of 90210. They were early 20's playing high school kids.

I've seen Mad Men but I had no idea they were that big. Are they real? They dwarf the beautiful woman on top of them.

His being a trained surgeon isn't relevent to how long the training would take. The training takes the same amount of time for everyone. That's why people who have gone through OCS are called "90 Day Wonders".
90 days is a breeze. If you have to learn military posturing for four years while already holding the academic degree you really need in your line of work, Starfleet probably will be left without your skills.

Obviously, it is not the same time for everybody in Starfleet, as Kirk could cut a full year from his studies just by being so darned good-looking, I mean, clever. For all we know, McCoy finished his own studies in three months, which is why he is already a high-ranking commissioned officer while Kirk is still facing a cadet disciplinary board; it's not at all atypical for our good old country doctor to participate in Kobayashi Maru simulations despite having graduated years ago, as viewers of ST2:TWoK well know.

IIRC, there is no canonical confirmation that the Academy would be a four-year endeavor. Instead, we know of a hero who graduated in three years, and a villain who dropped out in his fifth year. Four might be some sort of a happy average - and even then, only for characters who aim for starship command and thus take all the relevant courses, including the one that involves the no-win scenario test that neither Spock nor McCoy ever took.

Pretty sure they're real. Her neck is long and thin, but the rest of her body is actually pretty curvy.

I was talking about the real world. Star Trek is different. Though in the real world, Military Academies are four year colleges. Pike mentions Kirk could be an officer in four years. So I assume that the normal time frame. Wunderkind like Chekov and Kirk excepted.

I assume McCoy was learning more than "military posturing" in his three years there. Probably expanding his knowledge of "space medicine".
