About Pediatric Interest Group

The Pediatric Interest Group brings together students who are interested in learning more about the pediatric medical field! We have great opportunities for students in many areas of pediatric care. We offer shadowing in the pediatric emergency room as well as a UMass favorite, a chance to participate in pediatric “mini-rounds” with Dr. Tim Gibson! Students shadow Dr. Gibson as he introduces you to his patients and their medical conditions on the inpatient floor. Book buddies is a great way to relax, read book or two with pediatric patients, and get away from your own textbooks! With our student run pediatric theme parties, we hope to brighten the day of a child who is admitted to the inpatient unit, and create theme-related projects for children who cannot visit the playroom. We also offer several informational lunches and dinners throughout the school year.
