This is a wonderful career choice! While in high school, be sure to take biology, chemistry and other science classes. This will build your foundation for the science courses that will be required for a biology / pre-med major. Try to enjoy and take in as much knowledge as possible during lab classes. Lab work helps students apply the class work to real science questions. Many colleges have pre-med programs so you should be able to find a university that fits your needs. But another thing that you can do now that can help prepare you and that you can include on your college application and resume, is to volunteer, perhaps at a day care, youth program, or even a children's church program. Being a pediatrician requires the interests and love for children and working with children early shows that you have that interests, patience and support!
