Pediatric patients present opportunities, challenges, and rewards that are unique in medicine. As a student it is essential to be exposed to growth and development from newborn to adulthood, the medical management of the pediatric patient, preventive care and psychosocial issues of childhood. The management of pediatric patients requires special thought processes, skills, and techniques that must be mastered by all medical students. Pediatrics is a six-week rotation in the third year.
