Pediatrics is a branch of medicine that manages the health and wellbeing of infants, children, and adolescents. There are a number of medical subspecialties that fall under pediatrics, including sports medicine, child abuse pediatrics, neonatology, emergency medicine, critical care, allergy and immunology, oncology, and more. Contrary to popular belief, there is a significant difference between pediatric and adult medicine. For starters, the physical, mental, and emotional maturation between adults and children is substantially different. Moreover, many physicians in this field of medicine manage conditions only seen in children, such as congenital defects and development issues.
