Hi, Congratulations.

First you have to get basic medical degree (e.g. M.D.) and then work as resident in a pediatric institute, appearing after few years for Board Certification exam for Pediatrician.

Later you can branch out also to specific sub-speciality like Ped Hematology, Nephrology, etc or even surgical ones if you have passed in a surgical branch Board.

Good luck.
