In brief: Child specific

training initially consisting of a three year residency in Pediatric Medicine following Medical School.
After that, most pediatricians participate in ongoing continuing education to keep up with the rapidly changing field of Pediatrics. Pediatricians are certified by the American Board of Pediatrics with ongoing educational requirements and interval testing to confirm continued competence.
