Medical Student Rotations at Seattle Children's

PEDS 698 Pediatric Boot Camp

Course Description: This is a “boot camp” experience focusing on skills necessary to be a successful intern taking care of children. Topics include infant lumbar puncture, the pediatric physical exam, advanced life support, communicating with consultants, answering pages and so much more. The course will take place primarily on Children’s campus and will include small group discussions, simulation, hands on practice and interactive sessions lead by experts. Due to the intense, hands-on experience, enrollment is limited.

Course Objectives:

  • Demonstrate effective and professional communication with members of the care team in various clinical settings (i.e. signout, calling consults, answering pages).
  • Demonstrate effective and professional communication to patients and families on common pediatric topics (i.e. immunizations, delivering difficult news, obtaining consent).
  • Successfully perform common procedures and skills encountered in pediatrics (i.e. physical exam, suturing, spinal tap).
  • Demonstrate the ability to make diagnostic and therapeutic decisions for common pediatric problems.
