Pediatrics (MBBS India)

by Brian Alverson, MD, Hetal Verma, MD, Jacquelyn McMillian-Bohler
Pediatrics is the branch of medicine that focuses on the integral diagnosis and management of illnesses that affect newborns, infants, young children, preteens, and adolescents until the age of 18 years. After birth, there is a constant change in the child’s physiology as they grow. A pediatrician plays an important role in understanding and leveraging this knowledge to provide the best possible care. In this course, the student will be introduced to the main pathologies that affect every organ system in the pediatric population, along with introductory knowledge of adolescent medicine, neonatology, child development, pediatric oncology, and genetics. For optimal comprehension, the student is required to have a good understanding of human anatomy and physiology, as well as a solid grasp of internal medicine. Children are especially susceptible to infectious diseases and congenital conditions, which could be brought about by genetic syndromes (e.g., ventricular septal defect in Down’s syndrome). A general physician must be able to assess growth and development in children to ensure all milestones are being met and that they are not being subjected to conditions of abuse.
