Paediatrics I – Clinical Knowledge
Just like adults, but smaller.
For each condition, Megan will take you through how it presents, what investigations you need to think of ordering if you suspect it, and the initial management you need to know to be exam ready.

Dr Megan Kerr
FY2 Paediatrics Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary
I never really expected to be interested in paediatrics thinking I was more interested in surgery but my placement in 4th year surprised me and I found myself excited and happy to be involved in the paediatrics society at university. Paediatrics is one of my FY2 rotations and I am enjoying it thoroughly and learning loads.
I’m not sure what else to add here so I’ll tell you a story about when I was an FY1 in medical receiving. I was with a consultant who was doing a cranial nerve exam on a patient and while asking him to do all the various facial expressions he asked the patient to show him his teeth. The patient dutifully obliged by pulling out a full set of dentures and handing them to the consultant.
