Course Overview

The Department of Pediatrics has particular scheduling needs in terms of the preparation of monthly rosters so that it is imperative that students complete a request for change at least one month before the start of the clerkship. No selective in Pediatrics may be "dropped" later than one month before the scheduled start date. Please note that Pediatrics Electives are unavailable to International Visiting Students.
