Hi Sammy:

By far, I'm not a pediatrician but, I'm a Mom of a son who is one and he loves it. He's a young man straight out of college, then to medical school and now in his last year of residency; then to fellowship. As long as he has been working with patients in medical school (rotations) and now children in a hospital, he has built up a great immune system. Some of the things he does to remain healthy is to abide by the COVID-19 PPE (personal protective equipment) (wear masks, wash hands, etc. etc.)) requirements. He also work-out frequently at his apartment complex and often takes hikes with his dog. I think you'll be fine as long as you practice good PPE and stay healthy by remaining active.

I wish you much success on your journey to become a pediatrician.

Hi there,

I am not a pediatrician but I am a parent and have worked in different doctor's offices so I thought i'd try to give you some perspective. It is very likely you will pick up some form of illness as kids as young as a day old will be in your presence and will sneeze and cough. I worked in an emergency department for 6 years. I built up a great immune system after dealing with a few weeks of initial colds. Then I was fine.
In today's day of pandemic, the reality of more precautions and personal protective equipment is only going to increase over time which will also help with preventing the spread of illness.

Best of luck
