General Pediatrics Wards:
During the inpatient wards rotation, residents admit general pediatric patients as well as subspecialty patients from a variety of services with varying levels of complexity. We care for common pediatric illnesses such as dehydration, asthma, bronchiolitis, and appendicitis. We also care for complex patients that follow with many of our subspecialists including endocrinology, genetics, and allergy/immunology. Family-centered rounds occur daily at the bedside with the wards attending. Senior residents function as general pediatric consultants for the pediatric surgery and other subspecialty surgical patients. Weekly inpatient teaching occurs both informally on rounds and formally through a structured inpatient wards curriculum.
