Paediatrician » Overview


Paediatricians diagnose and provide treatment for babies, infants, children and adolescents who have medical problems or are not developing properly. They are also experts in normal child growth, development, feeding and behavioural issues. They usually work indoors in a clinic, alongside doctors, nurses, patients and administrators. They may work for one hospital, practice or they may be on call and go on home visits. They may also go on to start their own practice. Paediatricians are highly trained medical professionals and usually enjoy working with children and young people and sometimes get the pleasure of continuing a doctor-patient relationship with them as they grow up.
