Clinical Sciences


The pediatric clerkship is designed to emphasize those areas of medicine unique to childhood and adolescence through a combination of experiences in the outpatient clinic, nursery, and hospital. Such issues as growth and development, social maturation, behavioral disorders, infectious disease, immunizations, nutrition, and accident prevention will be emphasized. The student will have the opportunity to observe and participate in on-going well and sick child care in the outpatient setting and will work-up and follow patients hospitalized for evaluation and treatment. Student will also participate in various subspecialty evaluations (developmental, pulmonary, neurology, gastroenterology) in the clinic setting, and will observe newborn care in the nursery. Practical experience will be supplemented by a series of conferences, mentoring, and lectures.
