Pediatric Rotation Review

I conducted Pediatrics core rotation at Jackson Park Hospital with Dr. Hughes in the summer; this is a 6 weeks rotation. Dr. Hughes is a very energetic and nice pediatrician at the hospital.

There is one set of schedule during the summer and another different schedule during the school year. I had 4 days of clinic every week with 4 hours of rotations. Every other Friday I had to go to a clinic in a rural area, in Harvey, IL. Rotations are conducted in the MOB clinic on the 3rd floor. She serves as a physician at a local high school in South Side but since it was the summer time, I didn’t have to go to the high school.

Dr. Hughes does a great job in teaching about pediatrics. She will help you in understanding the vaccination schedules and more. She will teach you with hands-on learning with pediatric patients to understand pediatric concepts. All the patients you will see will be outpatients so you will not see any inpatients.

For the rotation you are to do one power point presentation on a system on 3 or more pediatric illnesses and one full pediatric history & physical.
