I'm assuming you meant you want to become a physician with pediatric surgery specialty? You can major in anything to be able to apply to medical schools, as long as you meet their prerequisites. It might be a good idea to think about what major you would enjoy most.

Good luck!

Hi Kennedy,

You can learn about human tissue development in a Biology study. It might be also worth doing a PA shadowing to assess your determination.
