What Is a Pediatric Primary Care Physician?

A pediatric primary care physician – or pediatrician – is a medical doctor who is specially trained to care for infants, children and teens. Each doctor has completed medical school as well as a three-year residency in pediatrics.

Family medicine doctors also treat children. Adolescent medicine specialists at the UMass Memorial Children’s Medical Center are trained in the unique health needs of adolescents ages 10 to 18.
