The Pediatric Clerkship prepares students for the care of the unique problems that affect infants and children as well as adolescents. There is a strong emphasis on human biology, growth and development and the principles of early health maintenance. In addition, the impact of the community and society on child health and wellbeing is emphasized. The clerkship focuses on the impact of disease as it affects a developing human and the recognition of common health problems. Students have both inpatient and outpatient experiences which permits exposure to skilled pediatricians in their practice environments. There is regular opportunity for student and preceptor interaction as well as didactic learning sessions
