PED 45052 - Neonatology

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


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. This elective is structured to provide the interested student an opportunity to develop skills in physical examination on neonates, in the recognition of neonatal illness, and in proper therapeutic intervention. Programmed as substitute intern, the elective student will work as a member of the house staff team and will have night call rotations with the physician staff. An attending neonatologist will make daily teaching rounds with students and residents who will also provide supervision during the rotation. Patient care responsibilities will be in the normal newborn nurseries in Baroness Erlanger Hospital and in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Children’s Hospital at Erlanger. Conferences will include 3 weekly pediatric conferences (Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday), Pediatric Grand Rounds (Wednesday) and pediatric lecture series (Friday afternoon).
