R2: Pediatrics at Children’s Hospital & Regional Medical Center ER
Residents rotate through the Children’s Hospital emergency department under the supervision of pediatric emergency-room attendings as well as subspecialty pediatric attendings who consult on the various patients. Residents evaluate patients, decide appropriate evaluations, diagnostic testing and treatment plans and present these patients to the attendings. They work towards becoming competent in evaluating, diagnosing and treating common acute pediatric medical and surgical conditions presenting at an emergency-room setting. This is a busy and popular rotation.
