PED1 4130/F - Pediatric Pulmonology

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 Pulmonary Medicine provides students with an opportunity to see a variety of infants, children and adolescents with lung problems, including asthma, cystic fibrosis, chronic lung disease of infancy (BPD), as well as ventilator and technology-dependent children. The outpatient clinics include 40-50 patients per week and include common new patient complaints such as chronic cough, recurrent pneumonia, wheezing, sleep problems and exercise difficulty. Students will have an opportunity to observe and learn about useful diagnostic studies including pulmonary function testing in both infants and older children, flexible bronchoscopy, and polysomnography (sleep studies). Approximately 3-10 patients per week are admitted on the Pediatric Pulmonary service, including cystic fibrosis, and the student has the opportunity to participate in multidisciplinary team meetings dealing with complicated patients as well as several clinical and research conferences per week.
