Pediatricians Clinics

Pediatricians work as primary care physicians, providing care to children. They diagnose illnesses, define diagnostic testing, and implement treatment plans. They also create patient education materials and maintain accurate medical records. They refer patients to specialists if needed. They also evaluate a child's medical history and review current medications. Pediatricians are also responsible for establishing preventative measures and educating parents and children. The typical day at a pediatrician clinic is filled with sick visits, well-baby checkups, and follow-up care. These visits will include a physical examination, growth assessment, immunizations, and general patient education. Children visit pediatricians for a variety of conditions, including common childhood illnesses such as colds, ear and throat infections, and asthma. Additionally, they may seek treatment for seasonal allergies and skin rashes. The CPCE is honored to recognize pediatricians for their outstanding contributions to pediatric care. This award recognizes their research and contributions to the field. Many CPCE Core Faculty members are recognized for their contributions to the field. One such physician is Dr. Jeffrey Gerber, who wrote an editorial for the Journal of Pediatrics about the use of telemedicine to prescribe antibiotics to children. Another CPCE Core Faculty member, Dr. Michael O'Byrne, led a study that found pediatricians who participated in a telemedicine program had fewer adverse events. CPCE also offers advanced care for children with complex medical conditions. Children with serious illnesses are provided highly specialized care under pediatric intensivists and other pediatric specialty services. In addition, pediatricians clinics also have "Launch Pads," home-like rooms where parents can get support from a medical staff. By providing parents with the necessary information and tools, they can become more capable of providing competent care once their children leave the clinic.
