Pediatric Pulmonary

Rotation Description:

The Pediatric Pulmonology rotation at North Carolina’s Children’s Hospital is a one month learning experience that will allow the resident to advance clinical practice skills in an inpatient pediatric setting. The PGY2 resident will become an integral part of the Pediatric Pulmonary (Blue) team, independently participating in clinical rounds and supporting the medication-use process. The resident is expected to design and implement age-appropriate pharmacotherapy plans, provide accurate and timely responses to pediatric drug information questions, collect and monitor patient specific information to assess the efficacy of drug therapy, verify medication orders, respond to code blue emergencies, and demonstrate knowledge of pathophysiology, pharmacotherapy, and complications of disease states commonly seen within pediatric patients. The rotation affords the resident opportunities to develop clinical and presentation skills, pharmacokinetic management, and discharge counseling.
