PEDI 440 - PEDIATRIC NEPHROLOGY

[152 Hours]
The student will participate in all clinical activities of the division under the supervision of the attending faculty member. These include outpatient clinics (three times a week), and daily inpatient rounds with special emphasis on teaching. The student is expected to assume an active role in patient care and will be given responsibility accordingly. In addition, the student will participate in weekly divisional meetings focusing on patient care, new research in the field, and other subjects of clinical interest. Those interested in chronic illness have an option of following and “sponsoring” a child on chronic dialysis. The faculty supervisor will evaluate the student’s progress based on interest, attendance, fund of knowledge, and initiative. The student will also be requested to give a short oral presentation to the division on a topic of interest during the last week of rotation.
