In brief: Not Quite

This is a doctor, trained as a pediatrician.
Then further training was obtained in the area of childhood infections. Thus they are specialists in the area of childhood (pediatric) infections. An infectious disease doctor usually is the same but with training for adults only.Or occasionally for all ages.
