What is Pediatrics?
Pediatricians practice the specialty of medical science concerned with the physical, emotional, and social health of children from birth to young adulthood. Pediatric care encompasses a broad spectrum of health services ranging from preventive health care to the diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic diseases.
Pediatricians understand the many factors that affect the growth and development of children. They understand that children are not simply small adults. Children change rapidly, and they must be approached with an appreciation for their stage of physical and mental development.
Because the welfare of children and adolescents is heavily dependent on the home and family, the pediatrician supports efforts to create a nurturing environment. Such support includes education about healthful living and guidance for both patients and parents. Pediatricians participate in the community to prevent or solve problems in child and adolescent health care, and they serve as advocates for children and adolescents.
Pediatricians are therefore primarily concerned with the health, welfare, and development of children and adolescents; they are uniquely qualified to provide care for children because of their specialized training and concern for their well-being. Pediatricians achieve their competency through training, experience, and continuing education.
