Phase 2 medical students rotate through Pediatrics on the Care Across the Life Cycle block of the ForWard curriculum, which is centered on providing health care across the lifespan.
This 12-week block emphasizes care of vulnerable populations as identified in women’s and children’s health, and skills related to work with caregivers in addition to the patients themselves. Pediatrics-specific clinical experiences occur in pediatric primary care, newborn nursery, inpatient wards and subspecialty clinic settings.
All students complete an integrated patient-centered experience where they participate in caring for a mother-child dyad around the time of delivery.
