Pediatrics Residency Program

Medical Student Pediatric Clerkship

We welcome medical students to come rotate through our Department of Pediatrics! We have the opportunity to teach medical students through the Mercer University School of Medicine for 8 weeks. Our vision is to be recognized as a leader in providing the highest quality training in pediatric health care delivery and as a major resource for the development of health care for children in the state of Georgia.

Our objectives for students are:

  • Students will master a core of basic science and clinical knowledge (appropriate for the level of the trainee) essential for the practice of pediatrics.
  • Students will be capable of eliciting a comprehensive history, performing a complete physical exam and developing a comprehensive management plan appropriate for the practice of pediatric medicine.
  • Students will be proficient in clinical problem solving, including interpretation of tests, performance of technical procedures, and retrieving and utilizing bio-medical data.
  • Students will develop appropriate cultural sensitivity to effectively communicate with their patients and families as well as other health care professionals.
  • Students will be committed to life-long learning and quality medical care in an ethical, professional, and compassionate manner.

Our Pediatric Department is dedicated to promoting the discipline of primary care pediatrics.
