Inpatient experience takes place primarily at Children's Hospital Central California. There, two services comprised of a variety of subspecialty and general pediatric patients offer a broad range of experience and learning opportunities.
Specialty rotations at the Children's Hospital provide educational opportunities in: cardiology, critical care, emergency medicine, endocrinology, gastroenterology, genetics, hematology, immunology, infectious disease, metabolics, neonatology, nephrology, neurology, oncology, orthopedics, pulmonology, rehabilitation, rheumatology, surgery and urology. The small program size and the absence of fellows, even in this large pediatric hospital, allows a close relationship between caring subspecialists and residents. Electives are also available at UCSF's main campus in San Francisco.
Approximately one-half of your time is devoted to the service at Community Medical Center's ambulatory pediatric service in the Children’s Health Center in general and ambulatory pediatrics. In this setting, residents, pediatric nurse practitioners, nurses, licensed clinical social workers and experienced attending physicians form a team to provide excellence in patient care and practical bedside education. Because you spend one to two half-days a week in your continuity clinic for three years, you are assured of volume and diversity in primary and secondary outpatient care. The Pediatric Program is also the home of Regional Pediatric Special Services (HIV) and Child Sexual Abuse Programs.
Rotations in community pediatrics, child development and behavioral medicine as well as adolescent medicine in the first and second years are dedicated to ensuring you acquire a strong base in the behavioral and social aspects of pediatrics.
