Developmentally oriented and trained in skilled assessment, pediatricians’ patient-care lenses are focused on prevention, detection and management of physical, behavioral, developmental and social problems that affect children. Pediatricians diagnose and treat infections, injuries and many types of organic disease and dysfunction. They work to reduce infant and child mortality, foster healthy lifestyles, and ease the day-to-day difficulties of those with chronic conditions.

With structured evaluation and early intervention, pediatricians identify and address developmental and behavioral problems that result from exposure to psychosocial stressors. They appreciate the vulnerability of childhood and adolescence, and actively advocate for measures to protect their health and safety.
