Second Year

During your second year of medical school is a great time to explore whether you like caring for children. You can do this through a preceptorship or participation in the Pediatric Interest Group.

We are always happy to talk to people informally as well. Please contact us if you would like to set up a time to talk.

You can also find useful information about pediatrics from the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Scheduling your core pediatrics clerkship:

The practice of Pediatrics involves addressing the health needs of children. Every child should have the opportunity to grow and develop to achieve his or her maximum potential; the job of the Pediatrician is to assist in that process by treating and preventing illness, guiding children and their families toward good health choices, and offering information and interventions that support the overall well-being of the child.

Goals of the core pediatric clerkship: Provide foundational skills and knowledge about the fundamental issues of health and illness relevant to the care of children.

A detailed description of the current requirements and clerkship materials can be found here.
