WEEK 3: The case should be pediatric (a patient age 17 years or younger). By now, with two full courses and almost all of this course completed you should have seen a pediatric patient at some time.
WEEK 3 specific guidelines: The case must not be something overly simple. The list of things that should not … covered include sore throat, URI, UTI, ear infection, or contact dermatitis (poison ivy). You need to present a case that intrigued you or presents new content in a different light. *One of the above diagnosis can be presented if the findings were unusual and you clear such case with your course faculty prior to posting (at least 2 days before posting). In the pediatric case you must also include in the objective data growth chart percentiles for height, weight, and BMI, and tanner staging.
