What are some modules I could do kind of like Rocket Language( Go to https://www.rocketlanguages.com/ and you will see what I am talking about )? Because I want to become a Pediatrician.

I always dreamed to become a Pediatrician. Looking forward to seeing the Pediatricians that answer my questions one day! =D

Hey Sammy. It's good to see that you have started thinking about your future career and areas that interest you.

It's not clear from your question what sort of "modules" you want information about -- whether you are looking to learn languages or have a question about courses for becoming a pediatrician.

There isn't any "module" that can make you a pediatrician. But you can research on-line the process to become a pediatrician. You will need to graduate high school, then you will need an undergraduate science degree (usually, 4 years in Biology or Chemistry), then you will need to attend & graduate from medical school, next you'll do a residency, and pass your boards.


Desiree recommends the following next steps:

Research on-line how to become a medical doctor, with a speciality in pediatrics.
Research on-line U.S. medical school admission requirements. Start here: https://students-residents.aamc.org/applying-medical-school/article/applying-medical-school/
Research undergraduate science degree programs (e.g., Bachelor of Science in Biology or Chemistry), as per medical schools' requirements
Research on-line the the Medical College Admission Test or "MCAT"
Talk to your peditrican or any peditrician you know about their career path
Thank you comment icon Thank you so much for answering my questions! I hope you have a lovely day! Sammy

I agree with Desiree's very helpful answer. The only clarification I would add is that you do not have to be a science major to go to medical school as long as you take (and do well in) the required pre-med classes. A pre-health care advisor in your college can help you with what classes to take to meet the pre-med requirements (typically these are biology classes with labs, inorganic and organic chemistry with labs, physics and calculus). As long as you include these classes you are free to major in any subject you'd like such as psychology, Spanish, art history.... anything you find interesting!
