Pediatrics is the branch of medicine dealing with the diagnosis and treatment of internal diseases occurring in childhood. It a very broad discipline of medicine, which includes many specialties as subspecialties (ie. cardiology, pulmonology, gastroenterology, hepatology, etc.).

Similarly to the GP, patients visit the pediatrician’s office because of all kinds of diseases.
