Pediatrics is the clinical specialty which addresses the care of children. The Department of Pediatrics is responsible for the required OMS III core clinical rotation in pediatrics, as well as selective rotations available in pediatrics during the 4-week primary care and/or rural rotations. These opportunities exist in both ward-based hospital pediatrics and preceptor-based office pediatrics. It facilitates specialty-specific didactic lectures during the second, third and fourth years. The department is also responsible for pediatric elective rotations including, but not limited to, pediatric subspecialties available for OMS IV students.
