Medical Student Education
The Third Year Pediatric Clerkship is directed by Eve Colson, M.D., Associate Professor of Pediatrics. Andrea Asnes, M.D., Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, is the Assistant Clerkship Director. This core clerkship is eight weeks in length. Each medical student spends four weeks on an inpatient service, either at the Yale New Haven Children's Hospital or at Bridgeport Hospital
Inquiries about these two programs should be made to the Office of Student Affairs of the Yale University School of Medicine. The contact person is Robin Pinsker and Tracy Sotere.
First & Second Year Pediatric Pre-Clinical Studies offers students their initial medical exposure to the Pediatric population. A cadre of skilled Pediatric faculty implement tutorials twice during the second year of medical school, once in the fall and again in the spring. We believe this increased exposure will facilitate the transition into the third year clerkship.
