Hi Safa,

Pediatricians prescribe or administer treatment, therapy, medication, vaccination, and other specialized medical care to treat or prevent illness, disease, or injury in infants and children. They also examine children regularly to assess their growth and development.

A typical day for a Pediatrician will also include:

√ Treat children who have minor illnesses, acute and chronic health problems, and growth or development concerns.
√ Collect, record, and maintain patient information, such as medical history, reports, or examination results.
√ Prescribe or administer treatment, therapy, medication, vaccination to treat or prevent illness and disease.
√ Examine patients or order, perform, and interpret diagnostic tests to obtain medical condition and determine diagnosis.
√ Advise patients, parents or guardians, and community members concerning diet, activity, hygiene, and disease prevention.
√ Explain procedures and discuss test results or prescribed treatments with patients and parents or guardians.
√ Direct and coordinate activities of nurses, students, assistants, specialists, therapists, and other medical staff.

Hope this helps, Safa

A Pediatrician is a physician that specializes in the treatment of children from birth to age 21. They conduct well visits and ensure the vaccine records are updated, diagnose and treat sick patients, and will refer patients as needed to other specialist for an evaluation or treatment. Hope this helps.
