Publisher's Summary

Pediatrics, which focuses on the medical care of children from birth through adolescence, is one of the most fascinating areas of modern medicine. 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, helping each child grow into his or her greatest potential.

In these 24 lectures, don the doctor's white coat for an accessible journey into the world of pediatric medicine to solve medical mysteries. Each of these standalone lectures presents you with a case or series of cases that you tackle alongside Dr. Benaroch, from initial symptoms and workup to the diagnosis and resulting treatment.

You'll quickly see just how multifaceted and nuanced the medical treatment of children is, whether dealing with minor diagnoses like runny noses and ear infections or life-changing ones like cerebral palsy and neonatal pneumonia. But sometimes children have concerns that extend beyond the traditional realm of medicine. In addition to the fascinating facts and compelling stories he shares, Dr. Benaroch has crafted the perfect tool for parents and caretakers who want a panic-free resource for their child's health and wellness, including issues surrounding sleep, discipline, and mental health.

Whether he's dealing with a premature infant, complications arising with international adoption, or a homeless youth, Dr. Benaroch treats every case in this course with care and compassion. You'll quickly learn how the best pediatricians are also caretakers and counselors and why the experience of helping sick children is exciting and rewarding - especially when it transforms lives for the better.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Wish I would have found this earlier

Loved this recording - I only wish I would have found it before nursing boards, would have been helpful to review with!

Great case studies and conservational narration.

So Interesting!

What made the experience of listening to Medical School for Everyone: Pediatrics Grand Rounds the most enjoyable?

As a medical school hopeful, I found this entire course exciting and fun. It takes you through a pediatrician's perspective of dozens of cases, and he explains the steps of diagnosing each patient. By the end, you can almost make a diagnoses yourself because you learn the steps that he takes himself.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved how real it is. It actually feels like you're shadowing a pediatrician throughout his day to day duties.

good only for non medical background.

struggled to finish because it wasn't very informative in my opinion. I was looking to gain new knowledge but didn't get very much out of it.

What your pediatrician is thinking about.

This course was great, it gave me good insight into what my pediatrician is thinking about when we bring our daughter to see him. The case studies were interesting and cover a wide variety of topics. I also found it interesting how some of the most basic interactions help the pediatrician lead to the diagnosis.

lots of valuable information

for the lay person this provides a lot of valuable information. However as a scientist, I already was aware of much of it. It was nice to see the practical side which is relevant to my children.

Excellent cases for medical professional and lay person alike

The cases were engaging and informative; as a med student, I still found the level of detail as a great review of conditions. Would recommend to anyone who is interested in learning how medical professionals approach case presentations, navigate a differential diagnosis and triage care. My one issue was the discussion of gender and sex was slightly inaccurate (sex is what someone is born with, gender is a social construct - the lecture presented this the other way around), but overall thought bringing this up in the context of pediatric care was excellent.

Great Courses for Great Learning.

A very enjoyable method of learning about a subject. Actually hugely worthwhile for anyone who'd like to know more about children.
This Paediatric Dr must be a great guy for his patients. He really is dedicated and very caring.
