Pediatricians

According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, employment for physicians is expected to grow faster than the average for all careers through 2022. Job prospects for pediatricians—along with other general practitioners, such as family physicians—are especially good. This is because of the increasing use of managed care plans that stress preventive care; the passage of the Affordable Care Act, which has increased the number of people who are covered by health insurance; and the low numbers of medical students who pursue careers in family practice.
