Description: This is an advanced pediatric clerkship designed for students who have completed their Core Clerkship in Pediatrics and who desire a more intensive experience with increased responsibility in the management of pediatric patients. The student will function as a subintern and admit and manage patients as a part of an inpatient team under the supervision of senior residents and/or attending physicians. At night, the student will share responsibility with the team for providing coverage for all of the patients. The student will attend daily teaching conferences and radiology rounds with their team. The goal of this clerkship is to provide an opportunity to strengthen skills in the evaluation and management of pediatric patients.
