The family physician is often the point of first contact for children of all age groups. This affords many opportunities to assess development, ensure adequate immunizations, screen for dysfunctional behaviors and abuse, and counsel regarding healthy lifestyles. The ambulatory pediatric experience is an 8-week requirement split between the first and third year of residency. Residents in these rotations will be supervised by faculty members in the UTMB Health Department of Family Medicine and the UTMB Health Department of Pediatrics. Visits may range from acute (diarrhea, URI, vomiting, otitis media, etc.), to well-child checks and immunizations, to chronic problem management (asthma, ADHD, seizure disorder, etc.). Residents on this rotation also gain exposure to a vast array of pediatric infectious diseases.
