Medical Student Education

The goals of the pediatric experiences in medical school are for students to develop basic skills for caring for infants, children, and adolescents and to establish a foundation for further training in pediatrics. Students learn to appreciate the influence of growth and development on the diagnosis and management of illness. Students also learn how to evaluate the family unit and the child’s environment as part of the child’s total health evaluation.
