Every pediatrician provides care for young babies to early adulthood. Pediatricians are specialized in the healths of infants, children's, and teenagers Practitioner nurses have the same roles as a pediatrician:
perform tests

In fact, nurse practitioners will increase twenty-two percent during the year of 2008-2018. This adds 581,500 more jobs into the economy. Seeing a practitioner nurse is more affordable rather than seeing a pediatrician.

In order to attain my goal which is to become a pediatrician I must obtain a Ph.D in pediatrics. The University of Liverpool, UK is a great place to achieve my Ph.D in pediatrics since it is ranked one of the top ten university for medicine in the world. By: Arjun Rabadiya 3111 Personal Management Skills Fundamental Skills Teamwork Skills Employability Skills Responsible The word "responsible" for a pediatricians means everything to them since they are working with children and an overdose on a medicine would potentially cause death to the infant. Setting goals and achieving then also come into the category of being "responsible". Pediatricians are constantly learning and developing their strengths. Communication Kids crying can be the most annoying sound on the earth, so this is why pediatricians practice their communication skills on a daily basis in order to make the kids feel comfortable where they are.

Problem-Solving Skills Presenting assignments in front of classmates strengthens your communication skills. When I become a pediatrician I will need excellent communication skills so that I can easily handle the kids that I will be examining. Working in a pressurized environment allows me to manage my time easily. Volunteering at three different places builds up my time management skills. Time management is an essential tool in a pediatricians work life since the numbers of kids are rapidly increasing which means that their are more medical and behavior problems. In order to provide the care that the kids need, pediatricians need to manage their time wisely. By volunteering, at the Canadian Blood Services it gives me transferable skills that can be handy when I become a pediatrician. The atmosphere their is very difficult but I take advantage of this opportunity and strengthen my problem-solving skills. Although, pediatricians treat common illnesses frequently, they must view each patient as a new puzzle piece since each patient reacts to illness differently. Organization Skills Pediatricians need excellent organization skills since they receive a ton of paperwork, lab results, and phone call. If pediatricians are not organized the papers will get mixed up and next thing you know, you receive a flu shot that you were not supposed to get. Good time management skills will help the pediatricians stay on task and complete each appointment on time. This is what will happen to you if you do not manage your time wisely. Expensive Who Am I?
