Outpatient Pediatrics - PGY-1

(PGY-1)
During this block, we rotate with a community pediatrician in a private office. We see patients with the pediatrician, then discuss the treatment plan together. The practice is very busy, so we are exposed to a full spectrum of pediatric problems. Additionally, we receive a lot of training in patient and parent education during well child visits. We also become intimately familiar with the vaccination schedule! One half-day per week is spent at a local free clinic. This is always interesting; partly due to the frequent late presentation for care in these patients with limited resources, and partly due to the great personality of the pediatrician we work with! One day per week is also spent seeing sick children at the Turley Family Health Center.
