This six-week curriculum emphasizes pediatric pathophysiology and normal growth and development from birth through adolescence. This rotation consists of three two-week combinations of the following: Regular or special-care nurseries at Barnes-Jewish Hospital or Missouri Baptist Medical Center spent assessing newborns, seeing patients in the pediatric emergency department and Hematology/Oncology outpatient service and in St. Louis Children’s Hospital on a variety of inpatient services. Emphasis is on performing a pediatric history and physical examination and developing an appropriate differential diagnosis. Daily rounds with house staff and attending physicians, as well as weekly case management conferences and grand rounds, further this emphasis. A core lecture series also is offered on Mondays and Thursdays during this six-week clerkship.
