What should you study in high school or college if you want to be a pediatrician?

The choice of high school classes is not really a big deal when it comes to becoming a pediatrician. If you want to get into a good undergraduate university, taking advanced placement or international baccalaureate classes and doing well in them is probably a good idea. Once you're in college, there is no particular major that you need to take to get into medical school, but you need to take the prerequisite courses such as biology, biochemistry, chemistry, physics, etc. and you must take the Medical College Admission Test (In the United States at least).
