Medical Student Rotations at Seattle Children's

PEDS 688 Pediatric Rheumatology

Where to report: After you have completed the sign-in and badging process in the Medical Student Office, you are clear to report to ward rounds.

Schedule and Responsibilities: This is a combined inpatient and outpatient rotation. Throughout each day, you will see patients both in clinic and in the hospital. However, your outpatient clinic patients are your first priority, as they are scheduled to be seen specifically by you. Teaching conferences are also a priority. If we ask you to do an inpatient consult when you are scheduled for a clinic patient or teaching conference, please let us know.

Monday thru Friday: 9:30-10:00AM: Rheumatology Inpatient Rounds
Round with the Rheumatology team attending on all inpatients on weekdays. If there are no inpatients, teaching will be done during this time unless otherwise arranged by the resident and attending.

Monday thru Friday: 10:00-11:00AM (approximately)
Finish examining inpatients, attend ICU rounds on shared patients, follow up on inpatient consults.

Monday thru Friday: 11:00AM-5:00PM: Outpatient Clinic, Conferences, and Consults
You will be asked to do inpatient rheumatology consults and see patients in rheumatology outpatient clinic. You will see 3 new outpatients each week, and these patients will be scheduled specifically with you, so it is imperative that you be present in clinic at the scheduled time. You will have one hour to see each patient to obtain a history and physical exam, then an additional 30 minutes with an attending to present, review the exam and develop a plan of care. When you are not seeing your own patients, we invite you to follow us in clinic to see interesting exam findings, and to take time to read about rheumatology. In addition, we encourage you to participate in radiology rounds, joint injections, and conferences as outlined below.

8:00-9:00AM: Grand Rounds – or rheumatology lecture
9:00-10:00AM: Rheumatology Inpatient Rounds
10:30AM-1:00PM: Rheumatology Team Meeting
Participate in rheumatology team meeting, 7th floor Mountain conference room. We will have radiology teaching rounds twice monthly; lectures/research presentations; discuss inpatients, consults, challenging outpatients, and any other matters that need to be addressed. This is your chance to get to know the whole team and have didactic sessions.

2nd and 4th Monday of each month, 1:00PM-5:00PM: Joint Injection Clinic
Joint injections in OPC with inpatient fellow and attending. This is a great learning experience that allows you to inject joints on patients who are under anesthesia. These generally begin at 1PM, so page the inpatient rheumatology fellow or attending and they will show you where to go.


MWF 8:30-9:00AM:  Pediatric Morning Report

Thurs 8:00-9:00AM: Pediatric Grand Rounds/ rheumatology lectures

M-F 9:30-10:00AM: Teaching during rheumatology rounds. If there are no inpatients, the attending or fellow will teach during this time. If we have inpatients, teaching will be done as time allows.

Additional Formal Teaching: Please check with the on service rheumatology fellow and attending during rounds each day to determine when they will be available for teaching later in the day or later in the week. In rheumatology, we do our usual outpatient clinics even when on inpatient service, so available times vary for each attending. But we all love to teach, so please ask us!

Medical Student Presentation: On the final Thursday of your rotation, we will have you give a brief (15 minute) presentation to the rheumatology team. This will be about a topic of interest developed during the rotation. Please talk to the fellows and attendings early in the rotation to help get you started and refine your topic to a manageable scope.

We hope you enjoy your time in rheumatology. We want this to be a fun rotation with plenty of learning opportunities.
