A pediatrician is a specialized doctor working with children, from birth through adolescence. The pediatrician may treat injuries, diagnose diseases, perform tests and refer patients to specialists. The salary, training and educational requirements of a pediatrician are very similar to those of a family physician with the only major difference being the age range of the patients.
Average Pediatrician Salary :
New York $163,000/-
Los Angeles $157,000/-
Note for FMGs/IMGs: A majority of programs offering a pediatric residency sponsor the J1 visa. Even if you land a H1 visa, it seems that fellowships programs later on are mostly J1-sponsors . But then again, if you are good - programs will want you ...and will sponsor the H-word :-)
