A pediatrician is a doctor trained to prevent and manage health problems in infants, children, teens and young adults. To become trained in pediatrics, a doctor must take special courses for at least three years after medical school. This training prepares the pediatrician to manage children’s total health care needs.

A certified registered nurse practitioner (CRNP) may practice medicine under physician supervision. A CRNP assesses a patient’s health status by getting health histories, performing exams, and ordering and interpreting diagnostic tests.
