S2 Open to Visitors

Courses      Clerkships

This subinternship is designed to build upon the fundamental skills in hematology and oncology learned in Peds 305A, and to provide an intensive inpatient experience on the Hematology/Oncology unit at LPCH. Students act as primary caretakers for their patients, with instruction and supervision from the pediatric residents, hematology/oncology fellow, and hematology/oncology attending. Clinical activities include working up new patients, daily rounds and patient care, writing daily progress notes, writing orders, taking night call, and performing procedures, which may include bone marrow aspiriation and lumbar puncture. Students function as part of the ward team which is comprised of junior residents, fellow, and attending. Teaching activities include bedside teaching, small group discussions of clinical problems, instruction on reading peripheral blood smears and bone marrow aspirates, as well as participation in the regularly scheduled hematology and oncology conferences. Curriculum goals are to strengthen basic medical skills and to learn to manage complex, acutely ill patients with multiple medical problems, as well as to learn common diagnostic presentations of pediatric malignancies and the fundamentals of treating these diseases.
