This pocket-sized handbook is intended for medical students and beginning house officers. Its focus is to provide a succinct problem-based format for identifying disease processes, working up a differential diagnosis, employing the appropriate treatment, and anticipating the clinical course of the illness. The list of covered topics was generated based on the 100 most common pediatric admission and outpatient diagnoses at the top-ranked University of Washington's Children's Hospital and Medical Center. The book uses hot keys, mnemonics, tables and figures to help readers remember important facts. The authors are teaching residents at the University of Washington, and have used this material successfully in the training of medical students at their institution.

    Great as accompaniment to a textbook.

    Saint-Frances guide to Pediatrics is a surprisingly well-organized review handbook that addresses the numerous core concepts of Pediatrics. Its organization and succinct outlines, as well as its formulary, are ideal for use in the wards, yet it is comprehensive enough to serve as a study guide or review for students, residents, and any other health professional. The downside to its brevity, of course, is that those unfamiliar with some of the topics will be hard-pressed to learn from scratch the expansive knowledge base required in Pediatrics from this book; however, as an adjunct to a textbook, Saint-Frances Pediatrics has great potential to be a utile handbook. This is a great addition to the clinic, ward, office, or backpack.
