Inpatient Pediatrics - PEDI 548


Internal Medicine Clerkship, Pediatrics Clerkship


University of Maryland Hospital
5th Floor, Ward 5A/B/C

Description and Goals:

Senior students can choose to do sub-internship rotation on the pediatric ward. This ward teams care for pediatric inpatients on the general and sub-specialty teams. One sub-intern will be assigned to each team each rotation block. Each student intern is an integral part of the ward staff, composed of the resident, one intern and several junior students, and is assigned his/her own group of patients to work-up, follow and treat under direct supervision of the ward resident and attending physician. He/She actively participates in ward rounds and conferences. There is no night call but each student does one week of night float during the rotation. Overall, the rotation gives the student a chance to have primary responsibility for the care of the children he/she admits and serves as excellent preparation for an internship in pediatrics or other specialties. In addition, special emphasis is placed on honing the student's communication and professionalism skills, including direct observation of a History and Physical Examination by the teaching attending. Students are expected to be present at 7:30 a.m. on the first day of the rotation. Days off for interviewing must be cleared with the Inpatient Director well in advance. During the rotation, Dr. Lewin, Sub-I Director ,meets will all Sub-Is every Thursday at 3:30 p.m.
