PediatricsWhat is Pediatrics?
Pediatrics is the field of medicine that specializes in the care, development and illnesses of infants, children and teenagers.

What I need to know

The multidisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, child life specialists, social workers, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, dietitians, technologists and others, work closely with the patient and his or her family. The health care team is coordinated by the physician responsible for the child's treatment.

Pediatricians are physicians who care for infants, children, adolescents and young adults. They play a vital role in your child's life - helping them grow up healthy, safe and happy. Children have different healthcare needs than adults - both medical and emotional.
