The Senior programs in ambulatory pediatrics are designed to provide opportunities for each student to augment or reinforce knowledge and skills learned in the pediatric core curriculum, as they apply to child health problems encountered in an outpatient setting. To facilitate accomplishment of this overall goal, the following basic program options are made available within a four week block of time. 415p: Ambulatory Pediatrics Private Office: The student works with a pediatrician on the clinical faculty in a private pediatric practice. Participation in the care of patients in the hospital (rounds), office, and emergency room is expected. 415e: Ambulatory Pediatrics Children’s Hospital, New Orleans: The student will be assigned to general and sub-specialty clinics in the out-patient department of Children’s Hospital. New Orleans. The student will be assigned to general and sub-specialty clinics in the outpatient department of Children’s Hospital. A new Ambulatory elective is offered in the 2007-2008 academic year. The student will rotate through the Tiger Care clinics and the Children’s Hospital Emergency Room. Responsibilities include performing independent history and physical examinations, developing differential diagnoses and management plans, and discussing those with LSU Pediatrics faculty. For all programs, evaluation of students will be based primarily on staff assessment of the student’s abilities and attitudes in the student’s day to day work with patients.
