Educational Goals 
Clinical Curriculum 



The Department of Pediatrics is committed to providing quality educational experiences at the bedside and in didactic conferences. Vanderbilt housestaff are exposed to a wide variety of subjects and teaching styles through weekly conferences, morning reports, journal clubs, and ward rounds. 

Our residents assume a primary role in educating medical students at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. While interns typically teach by example, it is the expectation of the junior and senior residents to provide "chalk talks" and more formalized teaching sessions with the students.

There are also ample opportunities to teach non-physicians. From breastfeeding classes for new mothers to lectures in the school of nursing, housestaff improve the health of children by sharing knowledge in the classroom and in our local communities.
