Medical Student Training Opportunities
PEDS 300A. Pediatrics Core Clerkship (LPCH, SCVMC)
Pediatrics 300A is an eight-week core clerkship, divided into four weeks on an inpatient service and four weeks in an ambulatory pediatric setting. Students spend four weeks at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital, Packard El Camino or Kaiser Santa Clara and four weeks at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center. During the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital rotation, Stanford, third year medical students rotate through the Center for Adolescent Health Teen and Young Adult Clinic and the Stanford Eating Disorders Clinic, where they get exposure to adolescent medical and psychosocial problems seen in the outpatient setting.
PEDS 315A. Adolescent Medicine (LPCH)
This one month elective has a focus on adolescents with eating disorders. During this elective you will rotate through out-patient eating disorder clinics and an in-patient eating disorder unit. This is an excellent opportunity to participate in a multi-disciplinary nationally recognized program for the care of adolescents with eating disorders. A requirement of the rotation is to prepare a talk on a topic of interest in adolescent medicine, with a handout and bibliography. The talk will be given during the last week of the rotation. Additionally, there may be an opportunity to rotate through primary care and community outreach teen clinics, though these clinics are not available on a regular basis. Weekly teaching conferences also supplement the curriculum.
