My grandmother is a developmental pediatrician. The work is difficult and can be emotionally draining, but she made a huge difference in the lives of her patients and their families. If you are committed to treating sick children (and don't mind getting sick yourself every once in a while), this is a great field.

Monica’s Answer

Hi Amy,
I am a Mom, not a pediatrician, so I'll give you the advice from the perspective of someone who has a child and knows a lot of mommies with other children. Children's Nuero/Cardio/Pulmonary is very common since that is mostly what kids suffer the most ailments with commonly. There is also pediatric ENT, my own child did have surgery as a baby and her ENT was phenomenal in treating her recurring ear infections. You can think about pediatric dentistry, or pediatric ophthalmology.... my daughter sees a specialist for her eyes. There's always physical therapies/medicines for children and babies that have growth or development challenges with their bones/muscles/movements. If you really have the strength for it, there is pediatric oncology. Good luck with whatever you choose! it will be in great demand no matter what and you will end up helping the world :)
