Hamakua-Kohala Health desires to employ a Provider experienced in pediatric practice to provide professional medical care and treatment to patients seeking health care services at the Center.
Pediatricians are doctors who manage the health of a child, including physical, behavior, and mental health issues. They're trained to diagnose and treat childhood illnesses, from minor health problems to serious diseases.
Pediatricians have an education that gives them special skills to take care of a child's health. They graduated from medical school and completed a 3-year residency program in pediatrics.
The Center requires the Provider to be “board-certified." That means they've passed rigorous exams given by the American Board of Pediatrics. To stay certified, pediatricians have to meet regular education requirements.
Provider’s scope of practice is defined by the Hawaii State Board of Licensing. The Provider may perform all those assessments, diagnoses, patient management, procedures and treatments within scope of practice as defined by the Hawaii State Board of Licensing according to the Provider level of comfort, expertise, and education. It is the Provider’s professional discretion to determine these with the consideration of ethical medical care, patient safety and level of training.
The Provider shall comply with all applicable state and federal laws and rules relating to practice, medications, and treatments.
