Pediatrician's play a key role in almost every child's life. Pediatrician's are a child's saving grace when a parent no longer knows how to help make their baby feel better. Pediatrician's work their hardest to make a family as healthy as they can be. Pediatricians are responsible for taking care of children who are sick and for making sure children stay as healthy as they can.
The daily tasks of a Pediatrician are simple, yet challenging. They have to administer vaccinations, treat illnesses, perform wellness checkups, make hospital rounds, check test results and write prescriptions for their patients.
Pediatricians have a very high salary compared to some of the other careers in the hospital/clinical setting. A Pediatrician on average makes $167,640 annually. Which means they make about $80.59 per hour.
