Pediatrics could clearly be its own series of modules, since it encompasses such a broad range of conditions, but many pediatric conditions are covered in other modules, such as trauma in the “Trauma and Critical Care” module, making this module much more manageable. There are many unique clinical circumstances to consider with children, even pediatric patients at various ages, so a thorough understanding of these ‘not just little adults” is essential. Parents entrust you with their most precious treasure and you need to be prepared to earn that trust by being knowledgeable in all aspects of their care, or at least know when and how to seek support. Numerous bedside videos of actual patient encounters will help you hone your clinical acumen so you can begin to differentiate “sick” from “not sick.”
