Children's Health

$225 — 6 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™

The majority of international aid work is focused on pediatric patients, but unless you are a Pediatrician or FP you likely feel a bit nervous treating tiny humans in resource limited settings.  Before you travel to an unfamiliar health landscape and practice medicine in a culture you may not know, with diseases you might not recognize, and with tools you've never used before, it's a good idea to do some review and prepare for the kids that will surely be the lion's share of your mission’s patient demographic. This bundle course covers all the main tools and considerations you'll want to have in your black bag for seeing kids age 0-18.
