Pediatrics is the branch of medicine dealing with the health and medical care of infants, children, and adolescents from birth up to the age of 18.

What does a pediatrician do?

A pediatrician is a child's physician who provides not only medical care for children who are acutely or chronically ill but also preventive health services for healthy children. A pediatrician manages the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of the children under their care at every stage of development, in both sickness and health.

Aims of pediatrics

The aims of the study of pediatrics are to reduce infant and child rate of deaths, control the spread of infectious disease, promote healthy lifestyles for long disease-free life and help ease the problems of children and adolescents with chronic conditions.

Pediatrics is concerned not only about immediate management of the ill child but also long-term effects on quality of life, disability, and survival.
