Peds ER

This is by far one of my favorite rotations. It was a great opportunity to see many different aspects of pediatrics. We get great exposure to many pediatric emergencies and its also a great refresher on those worrisome cases that need ER level care. Not to mention there are plenty of lacerations to stitch up if you feel like working on your suturing skills. The setup gave me the opportunity pick certain chief complaints that I felt I needed work on.

The attendings were great in teaching and allowing us to have autonomy to make decisions about the patient. I never felt like I was doing scut work or like I had an overwhelming amount of paperwork. Rather, the focus of the rotation was on us residents seeing all types of cases and coming up with plans.
