Click on one of the boxes in the image below to see a slideshow of the organisms that comprise each group or scroll down to learn more.

I often get interview questions from students about becoming a pediatrician.

Interview with a Pediatrician

Typical questions include how much school do you have to go through, what influenced you to become a pediatrician, typical salaries, etc. While I am going to answer many of those questions, if you are doing a school project on a career in pediatrics, I think it is best that you talk with a pediatrician in your community and do the interview in person. 1) What kind of education do you need to become a pediatrician? Pediatricians typically complete 11 years of training to become a pediatrician, including: 4 years of college 4 years of medical school 1 year of an internship in pediatrics 2 years of a pediatric residency Pediatric specialists, like a pediatric cardiologist or pediatric endocrinologist, also have to complete at least 3 years of specialty fellowship training. 2) How much does all of that schooling cost?

3) What should I choose as a major in college? Of course not. 5) Does it matter where I go to college?
