Med IV pediatrics clerkship 

The Med IV pediatrics clerkship is four weeks in duration. The clerkship is predominantly inpatient experience. Med IV students are integrated into the medical team; and this ensures that students provide service to patients rather than being passive participants. Two weeks of the clerkship are spent on the Pediatrics Ward (6N, 29 beds) where the student is a member of the general pediatrics team and two weeks in the Children Cancer Center of Lebanon inpatient unit consisting of 20 beds. The students also attend a daily schedule of lectures.

Purpose of the Pediatrics Med IV clerkship​

  • Instill in students a sense of personal responsibility for pediatric patients, and responsibility for data gathering, data analysis and medical management.
  • Provide to students an overview of how to evaluate and examine infants, children and adolescents. In addition, it will help students develop an appreciation of the scope of pediatrics, how to recognize a seriously ill child, and the fact that, medically-speaking, children are not miniature adults. ​
