UW Pediatrics

Patient Care Phase

If you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms or have experienced a possible or known exposure, please follow the procedures that can be accessed at https://education.uwmedicine.org/. This link will direct you to specific instructions for COVID-19 Exposure/Symptoms/Diagnosis Procedures. If you have any questions that are not addressed by the procedures outlined through this link, please contact the office of the Associate Dean of Student Affairs at adminsa@uw.edu.

The core pediatric clerkship is designed to provide a comprehensive overview of the approach to the care of children and their families. In addition, you will explore the range of reasons children seek medical care, from well child visits to acute medical problems in both the inpatient and outpatient setting and the ongoing management of chronic illnesses. Each clerkship site is unique in the setting, faculty and patients seen.

We have a Faculty/Educator Resources Page! Password protected; contact the Medical Student Program for access.
