Hershey Clerkship Expand answer

The Pediatric clerkship is a 4-week clerkship where you will be exposed to the breadth of diseases that occur in children. This will include experiences in inpatient, outpatient and newborn nursery settings. You will be exposed to children from birth to 18 with a variety of complaints, ranging from well-child checks to acute concerns requiring hospitalization. There will be children with chronic illnesses, behavioral issues, and acute illnesses as well as children who are being seen for well child care. You 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 and development of age and symptom specific differential diagnoses will be a focus.
