I have a very good friend who is a pediatrician. She loves being part of a child’s development and seeing them grow over the years. She is very close to her patients and is an indispensable resource to their parents. Pediatrics can be a very for filling career path, and I wish you the best of luck!

Mallory’s Answer

I am a medical student right now but what I enjoyed most about pediatrics was the relationship you have with families and the impact you can have on their lives. It is a really special relationship!

If you want to be a pediatrician - first you need to take pre-med courses in college and take the MCAT before applying to medical school.
I would recommend volunteering or working in a hospital. Try to shadow physicians or pediatricians to learn more about their lifestyle.
In medical school you will have the chance to work with pediatricians in your 3rd and 4th year.

Most importantly you just need passion and perseverance! You can do it!

Mallory recommends the following next steps:

Talk to pediatricians, shadow them
Study for courses
Volunteer or work in hospitals
Make a list of goals!
