Advanced selective students will take on the responsibility of an acting intern on the pediatrics inpatients team and may rotate through other pediatric services. They will collaborate with pediatric and medicine-pediatric interns and medical students in their foundational training. They will be supervised by pediatric and medicine-pediatric senior residents and faculty attendings.
