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.

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.

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.

Pretty good

I learned a little. Some of the anecdotes are helpful. A bunch of them are sort of out there. I'd recommend it for a quick primer on pediatrics.

I would give this 6 stars if I could!

I don't routinely write reviews, but I have to applaud Dr. Benaroch. This series of lectures about pediatric medicine is fantastic. I first got this while in nursing school, and I've listened to all of the lectures numerous times throughout school to become a pediatric nurse practitioner. I recently graduated, and these lectures helped me to answer some of the trickiest questions on the board certification exam. I pick up on something different every time I listen, so I know I'm growing as a pediatric provider. I recommend this to everyone - parents, nursing and medical students, and working healthcare professionals. Now I think I'll go listen again...

Informative and Engaging

I enjoyed the narrator's easy to listen to voice, who weaves through stories of children's illnesses and potential diagnoses or causes of presented symptoms. helpful for any parent, grandparent or care giver. I especially liked the way he looked at changes of behavior. overall very engaging book.

Great for clinical medics student anxious about Peds rotation!

Spoken in terms that lay folk can understand, but also full of tips for the medical student who’s trying to learn the best way to examine and interact with pediatric patients as well as parents in order to get even difficult messages across and tasks done in a productive and positive manner. Clinical students can easily predict what the diagnosis is in each case, but will still benefit from the discussion of the management and counsel provided with the cases.

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.
