Hi Awa! It's great to hear that you have a strong interest in being a pediatrician. If you know someone who is a pediatrician, then you can schedule to have an informational interview. Other ways to have an informational interview with a pediatrician is by visiting or calling hospitals, clinics and private practices to reach out to pediatricians to ask questions pertaining to the field. In addition, Linkedin.com is a good way to connect with pediatricians to conduct an informational interview. I think that you are taking the first step to explore everything that you want to know about becoming a pediatrician. I hope this answers your question and gives you insight on how to make arrangements to have a conversation with a pediatrician in order to obtain information about the field. Good luck to you and wish you all the best in your career endeavors.

Nija recommends the following next steps:

Reach out to hospitals and other medical facilities to arrange an informational interview with pediatricians.
Volunteer at any medical facility where you can have the opportunity to shadow a pediatrician.
Continue to do your research about becoming a pediatrician. You can refer to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, the internet and books.
