First of all you need to have a Bachelors in Science degree with some specific requirements from College(4 years). Afterwards you enroll in Med School which is 4 more years. Finally after you graduate Med School, you apply for a pediatrics residency program which will be 4 more years after which completed you are a pediatrician.

About eleven years total. A pediatrician is a medical doctor who specializes in the care of children. To be this kind of doctor requires four years of undergraduate work, and then four more years of medical school. In addition, you will have to serve three years of "residency," getting actual experience, before being certified as a pediatrician.

A pediatrician is a medical doctor. All medical doctors must complete medical school (4 years). Prerequisites for medical school include at least a four year undergraduate degree (usually biology and chemistry). After medical school a we must complete a residency. The residency for a general pediatrician is three years. Becoming a pediatrician takes several years like other medical professions. Typically, you get your GCSEs, then A levels. Then you go onto do a 5 or 6 year degree in medicine at university. Following this, you do 2 years foundation training; this basically links medical school to specialist training. The next step is your specialist/GP training which, depending on what area you wish to focus on, could take anything from 3 to 7 years.

It takes four years for the bachelor's degree with completion of all prerequisite coursework, and four years of medical school. There will also be an additional three or more years to complete the internship and residency requirements.

First, you need a bachelor's degree; let's say four years. Medical school is another 4 years, and when you're done you'll have an M.D., but you won't actually be a pediatrician until you complete a residency in pediatrics, which will take another 3-4 years, depending on the program.

I believe 8 years. 4 years for your pre-med school and 4 years for your medical school. Then you have your internship. Good luck and God Bless:)
