Endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics, this text is designed for third-year medical students in their pediatric clerkships or studying for pediatric shelf exams. The book is divided into two sections. Section One focuses on the general practice of pediatrics, including normal preventive visits. Section Two offers more traditional systems-oriented chapters that focus on a systematic approach to developing a differential diagnosis. This text is a nice hybrid -- part pediatrics textbook, part review guide for shelf exams or board preparation. A new arsenal of ancillary materials, including full text online, student testbank, and image bank accompanies the book.

NEW Includes authoritative content fully endorsed by the prestigious American Academy of Pediatrics; AAP's thorough review of the text ensures compliance with the latest in policies and treatment guidelines

NEW Links students and instructors to additional resources via thePoint, including the full text online, image bank, student test bank (also available in a convenient mobile format) with 200 USMLE-style clinical vignette questions, and access to the AAP's Bright Futures website for superior coverage of children's healthcare in the context of family and community needs

NEW Features a full-color interior design to better highlight the visual elements of teaching and learning pediatrics

Organized around those aspects essential to the pediatrics rotation, each chapter covers clinical and lab evaluation, pathophysiology, differential diagnosis, patient management, and Pediatric Pearls to help students make immediate clinical connections
