Paediatrics I – Clinical Knowledge

Just like adults, but smaller.

Neatly packaged into five chapters, Dr Megan Kerr our paediatrics 1 educator will walk you through the key conditions you need to know of in detail, before running you through some of those exam niche classics.

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.

Figures and diagrams have either been produced in house, or are provided by Scion Publishing. Occasionally images have been sourced and used under licence agreements. You can request a reference list via educator@study-hub.org

Stay tuned – The next Episode will be released later this month!

Meet the educators

Dr Megan Kerr

FY2 Paediatrics Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary
Hi everyone! I’m Megan and I’m currently an FY2 on the priority programme based in Dumfries Scotland. I have been involved with education, especially on the topic of paediatrics, for a few years now and am really excited to be part of the study hub team.

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.

Our platform wants to centralise resources. Addressing all your needs as a student…

To achieve this we need your help! Please share with us any resources you find useful, and feel other healthcare students should be aware of. Share as many as you possibly can.

Please include a link to the website where the resource can be accessed, and a brief description of why you are recommending we include it in our resource section.
These can be resources for study, or more supportive resources e.g. mindfulmedic.co.uk. But it can also be links to good sites to access cheaper equipment needed as a student e.g. Medisave.co.uk. Or even places that do awesome student discounts… 

In other words share with us all the awesome things you wished were shared with you much earlier than they were!

To achieve this, we want to work with students and professionals who have developed their own study materials they wish to share with the wider community!

Currently we are compiling resources provided by St Georges University of London’s finest, the BNOCs:
