Paediatrician or GP: What’s the Difference?
Paediatricians and GPs are different because babies and children are not just little adults. They are quite different because infants and children are smaller, and they have less mature internal organs which function differently from adults. Congenital problems and developmental issues, for example, are also very specific to young patients. Paediatricians are trained to handle these issues in babies, toddlers and older children.
