How long does a pediatrician have to go to university for?

I'm thinking about being a pediatrician and want to know how many years you have to go to university, how much they earn and what is the lowest score that you can get on your final exam to become a pediatrician.

Minimum educational time is about 11 years. 13 if you want to be certified. But a good 5-7 years of it is on the job training in a hospital only about 6-7 years of traditional university courses. Starting pay for a certified pediatrician is probably close to or over $100,000 a year.

4 years as an undergrad 4 years of medical school (you have to tak MCATS test and get in) 3 to 5 years of residency starting income is usually round 90 to 100 k dont forget that you'll probably have lots of debt from schooling and medical insurance is VERY expensive
