Pediatrics is the specialty of medical science concerned with the physical, mental, and social health of children from birth to young adulthood. Pediatric care encompasses a broad spectrum of health services ranging from preventive health care to the diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic diseases. Pediatrics is a discipline that deals with biological, social, and environmental influences on the developing child and with the impact of disease and dysfunction on a child’s development. Children require unique providers of care as they differ from adults anatomically, physiologically, immunologically, psychologically, developmentally, and metabolically.
The pediatrician understands the constantly changing functional status of growth and development and the consequent changing standards of “normal” for age. Given the breadth of pediatrics, a pediatrician can narrow their field of expertise in 20 different subspecialty areas.
