Outside SorrellThe Pediatric Clerkship at UNMC uses the standardized curriculum developed by the Council on Medical Student Education in Pediatrics. Curricular materials and grading criteria are disseminated to students at orientation and are on Canvas.

Students are randomly assigned to clerkship training tracks. The Community Track positions will be filled first followed by the University Track positions. Once assignments are made, students have the opportunity to switch within their clerkship group if they so choose. However, final approval of the switch is made by the Pediatric Clerkship administration. The breakdown of each training track is detailed below.
