Pediatricians are physicians who have specialized in pediatric medicine. SO,the first step is to become a physician. This involves graduating from college and going to medical school. Medical school is typically a four year program, although there are some schools that offer a combined BS/MD degree in six years. That is, a sort of combined college/medical school curriculum that takes six years vs. the traditional eight years (four years of college plus four years of medical school). To become a pediatrician, one does a residency in pediatric medicine after graduating from medical school. Most pediatrics residencies are three years long. Some pediatricians will choose to subspecialize in a more specific area, for example pediatric cardiology or pediatric emergency medicine. This requires post-residency training, called a fellowship, that takes from one to three years, depending on the particular subspecialty. Here is more advice: * I am not a doctor, but am married to one. She is a Family Practice doctor, which is considered general medicine. A pediatrician is also a medical doctor, pediatrics also being part of general medicine. What this means is that you must have a 4-year undergraduate degree and a degree from an accredited medical school or college. That is 8 years of higher education. You then have your residency period, which is a "hands on" training period where you are supervised by other doctors. That is either a 3 or 4 year period. Then you have to take your medical boards, administered by your state, I think in conjunction with the American Medical Association (AMA). You have to retake these every few years to keep your medical license. I can tell you that pediatricians are extremely dedicated medical doctors. They are also among the lowest paid, but it seems to be a very demanding and rewarding career. You don't have to be a genius in math or science, just very competent and good with people (and children). * A pediatrician is a medical doctor who specializes in the care of children. There are specialties within the specialty, ranging from neonatologists who specialize in the newborn to those who specialize in teenagers and adolescent problems, to the age of 18.
You have to work hard and stay in school!!!
There are no major requirements to become a pediatrician...theoretically, you could major in underwater basket-weaving and still become a pediatrician. What you do have to concern yourself with is meeting the minimum requirements for medical school. So, while you are in college, you must (for most medical schools) take 2 semesters each of biology, chemistry, organic chemistry and physics (and it doesn't hurt to take other advanced science courses like microbiology, anatomy and biochemistry). Nonetheless, when you are closer to your decision, make sure to contact the schools, that you are considering, to make sure that you have fulfilled all of their requirements.
