This elective is an introduction to breastfeeding medicine. Students spend the majority of their time in outpatient and inpatient lactation clinics in the DC Metropolitan area; however, students will also participate in in-home consults as well. Additional education is provided through didactic sessions and independent study. Students must provide vaccine records (including flu if seasonally appropriate), and proof of an annual physical and tuberculosis screening done within 12 months of rotation start date. Required forms and records must be provided 2 weeks prior to start date. As many of the clinics and experiences will be off of the Children’s National campus, personal transportation is required. No weekends or call. Approximately 25% of the clinical experiences may provide exposure to pediatric residents participating in their continuity clinic or NICU / well-baby nursery rotation. Many students find it difficult to attend noon conference or morning report while on the rotation.
