Kids, for all their youth and vigor, aren’t indestructible. They’re always growing, which makes their health needs different from those of the average adult. Enter pediatricians: trained medical experts whose sole mission is to help children reach their maximum potential.
Pediatrics, which focuses on the medical care of children from birth through adolescence, is one of the most fascinating specialized areas of modern medicine. Treating kids for everything from mild fevers to severe developmental disorders offers doctors an unrivaled set of challenges. For one thing, children often have a harder time communicating how-and what-they’re feeling. Furthermore, they’re constantly learning and exploring, which makes them especially prone to illness and injury. And the older they get, the more diagnostic complexities arise.
As painful as it can be to see suffering kids, to step into the shoes of a trained pediatrician is to better understand how these medical heroes diagnose common and uncommon illnesses in their young patients. The world of pediatrics makes for an exciting adventure in contemporary medicine, whether you’re
• a parent or caretaker who wants to know when (and when not) to worry;
• a practicing pediatrician looking for professional tips and strategies to use on the job;
• a medical student considering pediatrics as a potential field of study; or
• a casual learner hungry for the same medical problem-solving popularized in television and film.
Filled with the same high level of intrigue and insight that he’s brought to his other courses in the Medical School for Everyone series, Dr. Roy Benaroch invites you to follow him on more grand rounds cases-this time inside a typical pediatrics office. In Medical School for Everyone: Pediatrics Grand Rounds, you’ll don the doctor’s white coat for an accessible 24-lecture journey into the world of pediatric medicine. A general pediatrician and professor at Emory University’s School of Medicine, Dr. Benaroch introduces you to young patients who’ll sometimes test the limits of your knowledge-and challenge a pediatrician’s diagnostic skills-as you uncover clues to figure out appropriate diagnoses. And all the while, you’ll gain fresh knowledge about the world of pediatrics, including how pediatricians perform general examinations, how they cope with difficult patients (and their parents), and how they address some of the unique medical issues that only children face. You’ll also get a glimpse into how the field has evolved over the last century, and where it may be headed in the future.
