The six (6) week rotation has a two-week inpatient experience on 5 – West, the pediatrics in-patient ward. There is one week each of general outpatient pediatrics, emergency room, subspecialty and the newborn nursery.
There are evening/overnight shifts in the emergency department.
Our wards and clinics are busy and there is a diverse patient population. The spectrum of pediatric problems ranges from the common to the particularly rare. Many of our patients have challenging psychosocial issues that often require professional attention. The faculty consists of accomplished general and subspecialty pediatricians, all of whom are dedicated to patient care, teaching, and research.
The didactic curriculum consists of 12pm (noon) student-focused lectures, weekly grand rounds and multiple teaching sessions with the residents and attendings during the inpatient and nursery experiences.
Students are assigned to a resident and an attending on inpatient units, and students are directly supervised by attendings in the emergency room, outpatient and subspecialty clinics.
Students have ready access to campus and departmental libraries. On-line computers are ubiquitous in both the inpatient and outpatient departments.
