They will evaluate and manage patients as independently as possible under the supervision of faculty attendings and will work closely with pediatric residents. A sound background in well child care, developmental and behavioral pediatrics, and adolescent care as well as experience in managing acute and chronic ambulatory problems will be emphasized. The AI will prepare patient handout and will give presentation to interns in the clinic. The AI may participate in evening and weekend clinic hours.
