Job Description for Physician / Doctor, Pediatrics

A physician/doctor in pediatrics is a medical practitioner that works directly with children. Also known as pediatricians, these doctors collaborate with nurses, X-ray technicians, medical assistants, and other doctors (such as emergency room doctors and surgeons) to treat children. A typical day for a pediatrician may include appointments with sick children, conducting physicals to assess overall health, prescribing medicine, discussing treatment options with families, coordinating with other medical professionals for diagnosis, dealing with pediatric emergencies, and educating parents about their children’s illness and how to assist in the treatment process. Pediatricians may work during regular business hours or other shifts depending on the needs of their employer; some pediatricians work in private practice, and others work in hospitals and clinics that are open 24 hours a day. Most of this work is performed indoors in a medical setting.
