Elective Title: 93KP700 — PEDIATRIC PULMONOLOGY AMBULATORY ELECTIVE

The pulmonology elective is designed to give students broad-based experience in the diagnosis and management of children with respiratory diseases, with the major emphasis on ambulatory care. Students participate in the evaluation and management of patients seen in the pulmonology diagnostic clinic, follow-up clinic, apnea clinic, bronchopulmonary dysplasia clinic, and sleep disorders clinic. In addition, selective exposure to emergency room and inpatient consultation is provided. Didactic lectures are also provided 3-5 times weekly on pertinent topics. Students spend time in the Pediatric Pulmonary Function Laboratories and Bronchoscopy Suite to become familiar with the techniques used to assess pulmonary function and airway anatomy in children. Students spend time in the Pediatric Sleep Laboratory to become familiar with the indications for polysomnography. This elective (93KP700) is principally an outpatient and a consultation elective. This elective is recommended for students planning a career in pediatrics, combined pediatrics/internal medicine, pediatric critical care, pediatric pulmonology, pediatric allergy, family practice or emergency room medicine. The course goal is to provide students with the opportunity to develop skills in the outpatient care of infants and children with acute and chronic respiratory disorders.
