The pediatrics clerkship survival guide written by students who aced the clerkship.

This powerful review for the pediatrics clerkship provides medical students taking required

rotations with a single, concise, high-yield resource for excelling on the boards and wards. Hundreds of high-yield facts—written by students and based on the clerkship's core competencies—review everything students need to know for the clerkship. Margin notes highlight common exam and "pimp" questions to really help students shine. New to this edition, mini-cases are integrated throughout to give a clinical "face" to

disease discussions. A section of "classifieds" include scholarship and award opportunities. A new color insert contains 4 pages of full color images to amplify the text.
