The Department of Pediatrics participates in didactic teaching throughout the four years medical school by teaching, lecturing, and participating in workshops for Introduction to Clinical Medicine, as well as participating in Patient Care Experiences. The department manages third and fourth year clinical rotations in the pediatric disciplines. The third year rotations in pediatrics consist of office-based, hospitalist-based and ward-based rotation opportunities. There are also rural pediatric office rotations within and outside of the state of Arizona for interested students. The fourth year provides opportunities for electives in pediatric subspecialties, such as Pediatric Gastroenterology, Pediatric Cardiology, and Neonatology in the Intensive Care Unit.
