To earn a M.D. (medical degree), you must attend 4 years of medical school. To be accepted into a medical school, one must complete 4 years of college and earn a GPA > 3.5. At this time, your major makes no difference as long as you take those specific subjects for the pre-med program of the respective college you are attending. By the way, after completing medical school, you will have an additional 3-5 years of residency, working at a hospital in the field of pediatric/adolescent medicine.
