Third Year Clerkship in Paediatrics

During the six week Paediatric Clerkship, it is anticipated that the student will consolidate their paediatric knowledge and skills acquired in the pre-clerkship courses. Each rotation starts with two Orientation Day where expectations and detailed objectives for the Paediatric Clerkship are reviewed with the students. During the six week rotation, students will be exposed to inpatient and ambulatory paediatrics by placements in one of the following paediatric practice settings:

  • A three week rotation at The Hospital for Sick Children which may include either a placement on the paediatric wards, the Emergency Department and three weeks in a community paediatrician's office.
  • A six week rotation in a paediatric unit at a community hospital.

Method of Evaluation

Student evaluations will be based on clinical performance assessments and a written examination at the end of the rotation. Students are required to pass both the written examination and the clinical evaluations to obtain a pass in Paediatrics.

Academic Teaching Program 

Three full days of didactic teaching are held at The Hospital for Sick Children, within a six week rotation. This series must be attended by the 3rd Year Clerks and is open to Elective Students.


Computer Assisted Learning in Pediatric Cases (CLIPP) are on-line, interactive case based learning modules to supplement and reinforce learning from the clinical setting and seminar series.
