I am going to assume you are referring to a medical doctor (MD) with a specialization in pediatrics. If you are starting your undergraduate work, you can figure on approximately eight years, provided you take the program of study as prescribed by your institution.


ADDENDUM: one must complete 4 years of college in excellent standing; complete 4 years of medical school; and then, complete 3-5 years in a residency program (hospital setting) in pediatric/adolescent medicine.
