Clinical Cases for Pediatric Medical Students and Residents
The thirty-six cases presented in this volume are the pedagogic result of the author’s years working in a pediatrics medical setting. These cases include scenarios that aim to help students improve such skills as evaluating clinical presentations, formulating differential diagnoses, determining appropriate work-ups and interpreting their results, and producing working diagnoses and subsequent treatment plans. The text also examines appropriate responses to emergency situations. The cases come in a variety of formats to give a well-rounded tour of myriad scenarios. Suggested answers provided at the end of each case allow for critical assessment without immediate access to work-up results. This text is essential for those looking to build the critical skills necessary to succeed in the pediatric field.
