Can we assume that you have a bachelor's degree from a four year college or university? This is required for admission to a medical school.
The process is extensive. In addition to college transcripts, there are national exams (MCAT), interviews, reference letters, etc.
if you do not have enough college science courses, they will require more.
In general, you can do a google search for best medical schools. Cost will be a factor and many students are required to borrow money.
You graduate from a medical school and then do a residency to specialize in care of children. I would estimate a 3-4 year residency with additional time for specialization.
Whew! Best of luck to you.
