Hi Lisbeth!

It looks like to be a pediatrician you have to go to college and get a Bachelor's degree (which takes 4 years) then take your MCAT to be accepted into medical school (which takes 4 years as well), then you have to do pediatric residency for around 7 years then become licensed and certified!

You can learn more about it here:

depends on the residency cause it could be for a general one its 3 years but for like a surgeon its 6-7 depending what you specialize in Christopher B.
