Hi Ezhilarasi,

It seems you want to become a pediatric doctor, or pediatrician.

A pediatrician is a doctor specialized in the care of infants, children, adolescents and young adults. From birth until age 21.

The Cleveland Clinic (very well respected hospital) actually has a great write up about it. Here is the link: https://my.clevelandclinic.org/health/articles/21716-what-is-a-pediatrician#:~:text=A%20pediatrician%20is%20a%20doctor%20who%20focuses%20on%20the%20health,developmental%20issues%20that%20affect%20children.

I hope this helps.

Best of luck!
