  • 11. What Kind of Workplace Environment Is a Pediatrician In?  Office Environment  Most pediatricians work in an office environment, mostly in group practice, where several physicians join together to practice. Pediatricians also commonly work solo or in two-physician practices. The fewer physicians working in an office, the more responsibilities there are in terms of supervising support staff, patient caseload and being on call to answer patients' emergencies as they arise. On the whole, though, office work environments are comfortable.  Hospitals  The work environment of about 17 percent of pediatricians in 2010, the academy says, was a hospital, often a teaching hospital. Usually, hospital- based pediatricians are subspecialists, working in areas such as pediatric rheumatology, pediatric cardiology and pediatric emergency medicine. Not only do they practice their subspecialties, they guide new doctors.  Social Environment  Pediatricians do not work in a solitary environment, spending the majority of time with others. When providing direct care, almost the entire work day will call for constant contact with patients and their families. Pediatricians also supervise staff and collaborate with colleagues. pediatrician 11

  • 13. What is the Average Number of Hours a Pediatrician Works?  A pediatrician's hours will vary depending on his or her preference, the needs of the hospital or clinic where they work, and the pediatrician's experience.  Pediatricians spend some time seeing patients in a clinic setting.  They also have on-call hours where they work in a hospital setting for a set period.  Most pediatricians spend a certain number of their off hours working on paperwork and catching up on patients' charts. These are hours of work that don't factor into clinic hours or on-call hours. pediatrician 13
