PED1 4070/F - Pediatric Endocrinology-Metabolism

Cr Hrs: 3.5, 7
Session Length: 2 and 4 weeks

This is a face to face clinical rotation receiving 3.5 or 7 credit hours. The student should function with increased autonomy in patient care and must demonstrate competency in several of the Entrustable Professional Activities required for graduation. The elective in pediatric endocrinology is designed to teach students to evaluate and manage the most common problems of pediatric endocrinology and metabolism including: growth evaluation, puberty, thyroid, adrenal, pituitary and metabolic disorders, in addition to exposure to some of the less common problems. It is also meant to serve as an introduction to the discipline for those who intend to seek further training in pediatrics or endocrinology. Students will evaluate and treat both hospitalized and ambulatory patients under the direct supervision of an attending physician. Emphasis is placed on the efficient use of laboratory studies in diagnosis. Dr. Al-Zubeidi will meet with the students on a regularly scheduled basis to discuss their patients. The students will participate in the academic exercises of the Division. Each medical student will be expected to present a case at the endocrinology division case conference meeting at the last week of the elective. If students have other, specific educational goals, the elective may be individualized by prior arrangement to fulfill those.
