These are the types of questions to ask. This video can give you an idea of the way local pediatricians spend their days.
In the event that the doctor is in the daytime team, the first thing they’ll do is get sign-out from the team who was there during the night. They’ll sit with them to go through the vital indicators and go over what happened to patients during the night. The attending physician will join residents and students for rounds. If parents would like to join in at all, they’re welcome to take part. If they decide to not attend rounds, the staff ensures that they’re kept informed. This helps them feel as though they are part of the team deciding what is the best option for their child.
Pediatricians have to be educated continuously. It is done through the sharing of cases that are interesting by residents. If an attendee of one of the subspecialties teaches a lecture, this learning is also an option. Pediatric residents also help coordinate among different subspecialists. They ensure nobody is left out while patients are being examined by different doctors. It is now clear what local pediatricians have to do.
