Pediatrician Info

Pediatrician Summary:
Pediatricians practice pediatrics which is a focus on the mental, social and physical health of children from birth to adulthood. Pediatricians diagnose and treat infections, illnesses, injuries and childhood diseases. Pediatricians can choose to enter general care or they can specialize in a system of the body, such as heart, kidney, or lung conditions.

Education and Training: After attending four years of medical school, a student wishing to practice pediatrics must complete three years of pediatric training as an intern or resident. To become a pediatric specialist, another one to three years of training is required. There are 12 different specialties that a pediatrician can choose to enter. Once the training has been completed, three Medical Licensing Certification exams must be passed, followed by the American Board of Pediatrics Certification Exam. This exam must be passed every seven years in order to retain certification and licensing.
