    Talk with your school guidance/career counselor.
    Visit a nearby medical school and talk with the admissions department.

    How about you talk w/a pediatrician to hear specifically what he/she had to do to become one.

    You can also look into becoming a pediatric nurse practitioner.

    Talk with your guidance counselor... that's what they are there for.
