Arnold, MD — Rebecca F. Vickers, MD, is being recognized by Continental Who’s Who as an Exceptional Healthcare Professional in the Medical field, acknowledging her work in group practice at Arundel Pediatrics.

A committed pediatrician, Dr. Vickers established Arundel Pediatrics PA in 2006 and has been happy to practice with her colleagues, originally in Linthicum, MD, and then a few years later in the Arnold location where she currently works.

Pediatrics is the branch of medicine that involves the medical care of infants, children, and adolescents. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends individuals be under pediatric care up to the age of 21. Pediatricians provide medical care to people ranging in age from newborns to young adults. They are trained to examine, diagnose, and treat children with a wide variety of injuries and illnesses through all of their developmental stages as they grow and mature.

Dr. Vickers’ father was a psychiatrist, which led her to seek a career in healthcare as well.  She knew from a young age that she wanted to be a pediatrician because she loves children. She really, really cares about her patients and does her best to treat them proactively and preventatively. She also very much loves her staff, and they have all been like an extended family. She will often conduct and participate in “Lunch and Learns” with her colleagues so that they can all share their expertise with each other.

Pertaining to her educational pursuits, Dr. Vickers graduated from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and obtained her medical degree from New York Medical College. She then completed her residency in pediatrics at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Recognized as a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics (FAAP), the doctor is board-certified in pediatrics by the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP). In addition, she is certified by the American Heart Association in Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers (CPR), Neonatal Advanced Life Support (NRP), and Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS).
