Is it a good idea to do a double major in Child Development and Biology if I want to become a Pediatrician?

I am a senior in high school whose passion is kids and science. I have heard that getting a double major is something very beneficial to do while you're in college but I am not sure if Child Development and Biology are the right majors to combine during college and if they are going to help me become a Pediatrician??

Thanks ! #biology #pediatrics #pediatrician #double-major #child-development

Hi, sofie. I answered your other question in another page https://careervillage.org/questions/6601/what-should-i-major-in-if-i-want-to-become-a-pediatrician . I would try courses in those areas in university but if you find you dislike those areas in university there is lots of flexibility and do not be afraid to change your major to an area which interests you more.

At this stage , a guidance counselor would be helpful in pinpointing careers that you can pursue right now in university that focus on children and health.
