Clerkships in Pediatrics at Oakland
Pediatric Outpatient Subinternship
The Pediatric clinic at Kaiser Oakland has approximately 100,000 patient visits every year, with a mix of urgent care, well-child, and subspecialty visits.
The Subintern Role
Our outpatient sub-internship is designed to give you exposure to both general and subspecialty pediatrics. The majority of your time will be spent in the general pediatric clinic where you will have your own schedule of patients, including both urgent care and well-child visits. You will have the opportunity to perform the evaluations on your patients, formulate a differential diagnosis and therapeutic plan, and then present it to the precepting faculty pediatrician. The general pediatric clinic is always staffed by a supervising attending pediatrician, and there are usually 2-3 residents and a 3rd year medical student from the University of California, San Francisco.
You will also have the opportunity to spend part of your time in one of the subspecialty or multi-disciplinary clinics, including sickle cell, genetics, neurology, nephrology, hem/onc, gastroenterology, pulmonology, spina bifida, cystic fibrosis, craniofacial clinics and others.
