Pediatrics for Medical Students / Edition 2

Pediatrics for Medical Students, Second Edition, is the perfect guide for the pediatric clinical clerkship, and the only textbook written specifically for third- and fourth-year medical students! The transition from basic science to the clinical sciences can be challenging. Pediatrics for Medical Students is designed to aid medical students in making the transition from the systems-oriented approach of the preclinical years to the problem-oriented approach of the clinical years. Pediatrics for Medical Students addresses important pediatric problems in the context of both ambulatory and inpatient settings, concentrates on evaluation skills and the development of logical differential diagnoses, and contains straightforward discussions, with leading teachers in the field demonstrating how they would approach a clinical problem. From general pediatrics to each of the pediatric subspecialties, and with important chapters on medical economics and managed care, ethnicity and socioeconomics, and ethical issues in pediatric care, Pediatrics for Medical Students is the best resource for your pediatric clinical rotation.
