PED 45050 - Community Pediatrics




Cr Hrs: 3, 6
Session Length: 2 and 4 weeks

PD

This is a face to face clinical rotation receiving 3 or 6 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 community rotation is focused on familiarizing the student with community organizations and efforts that contribute to the health and wellbeing of our children. The organizations include Le Bonheur community outreach - West Tennessee Mobile Van (visits schools with children who need routine care), Nurse Family Partnership (home visits for needy families), Tipton County Schools (school nursing), LEAD (physical, speech and occupational therapy for disabled children from all socio-economic strata), LCAP (child abuse assessment), and SafeKids. Other organizations include - The Urban Child Institute (TUCI) and the Shelby County Health Department. Understanding advocacy for children is also part of the goal of the rotation and various activities are available including trips to Nashville when the state legislature is in session. The student will participate in several activities each week. A written journal of these activities is required as well as periodic group discussions. Reading material is also provided for each activity to augment the experience. Because of the scheduling of activities with schools and other agencies that decrease or change activities in the summer/holiday months, the rotation is only offered during eight months - August through November and January through April. The student who signs up for this rotation must have a highway safe vehicle and gas money for travelling to the various West Tennessee outreach locations. Trips to Nashville when scheduled are provided.
