Pediatrics provides primary care services for infants, adolescents, and young adults. Pediatric care starts at birth and lasts through a child’s 21st birthday or longer. Pediatricians prevent, detect and manage physical, behavioral and developmental issues that affect children.
From infancy to young adulthood, children go through many physical and developmental changes. Pediatricians are specifically trained in monitoring growth and development in young people and spotting deviations so they get needed treatment, right away.
Pediatricians undergo extensive education and training. First they get a 4 year undergraduate degree, then they must attend 4 years of medical school. When they decide to specialize in pediatrics, they join a residency program. Residency includes extra training in various pediatric specialties such as newborns, general pediatrics and developmental-behavioral pediatrics. Most pediatricians have a total of 10 years of schooling before they work in their field.
