Open Pediatrics Positions

Pediatrics is a medical field devoted to the medical care and treatment of children and babies. Pediatricians work with patients under 18, ranging from infants to teenagers. They are a “healer of children,” which is the meaning of the word “pediatrics.”

Some pediatricians specialize in treating children of a particular age group, such as 1 to 4, 5 to 12, and 13 to 17. They work in various medical settings, including general hospitals, children’s hospitals, private medical practices, medical research centers, and medical clinics.

Pediatricians can diagnose and treat children suffering from chronic illnesses, acute illnesses, or other physical or psychological injuries. They can also give preventative health advice to children and their parents to help them avoid contracting diseases or injuries.

Pediatrics is a critical field of medicine because a doctor must understand the various developmental stages of children and how certain diseases and treatments affect them. It is different with adults because their bodies are already fully developed. But with growing children, more caution and specialized treatments are required to ensure their physical and mental development are not impaired.

Pediatricians may collaborate with other medical specialists to treat and diagnose child patients. Since pediatricians treat physical and mental conditions in children, they often need to collaborate with other medical specialists to understand certain diseases and injuries better.

Are you studying to become a pediatrician? The educational requirements to become a pediatrician include a four-year undergraduate degree with pre-medical courses, a four-year medical degree with physiology and anatomy courses, a three-year pediatric residency program, and at least two years of fellowship.

The residency program gives you training and experience in treating newborns, especially newborns in intensive care. Once you complete the residency, you can start a general pediatric practice and treat children immediately. But to acquire a pediatric subspecialty, you’ll need 2 to 6 years of additional fellowship training. The pediatric subspecialty options include pediatric surgery, adolescent medicine, pediatric cardiology, and neonatology.
