What is the procedure for becoming a medical doctor in USA and UK? Is it compulsory to have an undergratuate degree (like BS in Biochemistry) before applying to a medical school? How many years does it take to become a doctor after being admitted in a medical school?
You don't need a degree to study medicine in the UK.

You do a five year degree in medicine, which is then followed by a two year foundation post, then you complete your specialist training. For example, it takes 9 years total to become a qualified GP and a minimum of 12 years to become a hospital consultant.

Hi Nona,

When will one get his MBBS degree after 9 years or 12 years?

You get your MBBS after the five year initial degree - but this doesn't make you a fully qualified practising doctor. this site tells you that it takes on average 10 years to achieve that.
