Hershey Clerkship Expand answer

The Pediatric clerkship is a four-week clerkship where students care for children with a breadth of diseases. Working in inpatient, outpatient and newborn nursery settings, students see children from birth to 18 years with a variety of complaints, ranging from performing well-child checks to managing children with chronic illnesses, behavioral issues and acute concerns requiring hospitalization. Students learn how to obtain pediatric histories, pediatric physical exams, perform anticipatory guidance, developmental assessments and give advice to families of children of all ages. Learning the breadth of pediatric diagnoses, development of age and symptom specific differential diagnoses, and the role of quality improvement and clinical pathways in optimizing the health system is a focus.
