Gwen Hardin,’s Answer

Hi LaChelle,

Hobbies or classes that would be good to take in high school if you want to become a Pediatrician would be any math and science classes. This includes your Life Science classes like Biology and Physical Science classes like Chemistry and Physics. Write a list of science classes you have already taken and your grade in that class and the science classes that you haven't taken. Work on improving your grades if they are low. Strengthening your knowledge in science classes will help you in college and medical school in general. Look in to volunteer opportunities or community service opportunities in your city that give you experience in working with younger children or students. Also, do some research at your local library or online about colleges with the best pre-med programs. Hope this helps.

Gwen Hardin, recommends the following next steps:

Write a list of high school science classes taken and the grade/not taken.
Look into volunteer and community service programs.
Research online or at your local library books about colleges with pre-med programs.

Richard’s Answer

Take as many AP or IB courses in high school. You have a lot of years of education in front of you and getting college credit in high school can save you time and money.

Try to find opportunities to pursue research.
Volunteer at your local hospital or low-income clinic. Ask physicians, PAs or other clinical providers if you can shadow them.
