This is a face to face clinical rotation receiving 14 credit hours.


Students spend 1 month on the inpatient service and 1 month on the outpatient rotation.  Medical students are active members of the medical team taking care of patients.  They will be expected to learn about normal growth and development, how to evaluate children of different ages, diagnosis and treatment of common pediatric conditions and have the opportunity to be exposed to many unusual disorders.  Attendance at student lectures, Friday afternoon lecture block, Grand Rounds, and Morning Report is required. Because of the relatively small number of students, there is a greater amount of individualized attention and responsibility that is given to each student.  There is direct faculty supervision wherever students are assigned on inpatient or outpatient services.
