To become a pediatrician, a person must graduate from medical school and be licensed to practice medicine. A bachelor's degree is a 4 year degree. This would be a first step toward become a doctor. After a bachelor's degree, the person would then apply to medical schools. It takes about 4 years to go to medical school. After medical school, comes residency which is where the doctor selects the kinds of patients he/she wishes to work with, in this case, pediatrics. .

The associate and bachelor's degree are referred to as undergraduate degrees. The master's and doctorate degrees are referred to as graduate degrees.

I Dont think there is any difference between PHD and Doctorate. A person who has acquired a PHD or Doctorate could be called as a Doctor....
