Pediatrics is a branch of medicine that deals with the medical care of infants, children, and adolescents. An eminent scientist named Abraham Jacobi (1830–1919) has been considering as the father of pediatrics because of his more number of contributions to this field. The medical branch of pediatrics has emerged into different branches like pediatric oncology, pediatric immunology, pediatric cardiology, pediatric critical care, pediatric dermatology, etc. Pediatrics is playing major role by saving lives of many children who will play major role in the future world. It has become the cornerstone of all the pediatric branches by working towards health care of children and can be regarded as a medical branch for future generation.
