Books For Pediatrics Core Clerkship / Rotation And Shelf Exam

I just finished my pediatrics clerkship. For us, the rotation is set up with 2 weeks of neonatology, 2 weeks of ambulatory / outpatient clinics, and 1 month of inpatient care. At the end, we were required to take a pediatrics shelf exam. I think I did alright, but that test was looooong. At any rate, to prepare, I used Case Files, First Aid for Pediatrics, and Appleton&Lange Review for Pediatrics questions. They were all fairly helpful. I'm pretty sure I saw some questions from the A&L show up nearly verbatim on my shelf. If you're interested in any of those, check 'em out:

Vikas Bhushan and Tao Le Bring You: First Aid For The Wards

Updated 2015-12-06

So, I've been pretty MIA the past few weeks. Why, you ask? Well, I recently started my clinical rotations or clerkships. I have pediatrics first. It's been pretty fun so far. Our system is set up to have 2 weeks of neonatology, 2 weeks of outpatient clinics, and 1 month of inpatient. I have finished the neo/outpt month and am now midway through the inpatient month. The kids have been surprisingly easy to work with and I haven't gotten sick yet *crosses fingers* In a future post, I'll discuss some resources that I have found useful, but for starting clinical rotations overall, First Aid for the Wards is pretty good. It gives you a good idea of the hierarchy on the wards, how notes work, and common practices and disease within each specialty. I definitely impressed my attendings by knowing about 'cupping' from the peds section. Anyway, check it out:
