We offer educational programs to help third- and fourth-year medical students develop an understanding of the process of growth and child development, learn to treat the common diseases of childhood and experience diverse work environments at multiple clinical sites in the Chicagoland area. With excellent teaching from faculty and residents, students consistently rate it among the top educational experiences of their clinical years.
Junior Pediatric Clerkships at Lurie Children’s are available only to Feinberg students. They feature a mix of experiences in inpatient settings and in ambulatory pediatrics.
In the Pediatric Subinternship, fourth-year students are expected to participate in all facets of inpatient services at Lurie Children’s for four weeks.
See the MD Education section for visiting students, including a list of our Global Partner institutions. International students wishing to schedule a visiting rotation should contact the International Office.
Pediatric Interest Group
The Pediatrics Interest Group (PIG) is a student-led organization that aims to increase student awareness and appreciation for the field of pediatrics through sponsored events, volunteer opportunities and early student exposure to mentoring. Past events have included a bone marrow drive, lunch talks with pediatric speakers, an annual student-faculty dinner event, student tours of Lurie Children’s and multiple shadowing opportunities. Group advisers are Margot Paisley, MD, and Nina Alfieri, MD.
