3. Narrative comments:

Because much of the third year pediatric clerkship experience is with general pediatricians, it is important to experience one or two pediatric subspecialties as fourth year electives. This will assist in obtaining support letter for residencies. Doing your required subinternships in either PICU or NICU and/or Pediatric Wards is important.
