Turn to Trusted Medical References
Leading textbooks such as Rudolph's Pediatrics and The Philadelphia Guide: Inpatient Pediatrics (2nd edition) are devoted to the unique characteristics and needs of the pediatric patient, from neonatal care through childhood and adolescence.

Consult an Image Library for Visual Diagnosis
Extensive image banks, such as those found in Color Atlas & Synopsis of Pediatric Dermatology help illustrate procedures, conditions, and neuroimaging in ways that text cannot convey.

Watch Multimedia to See Medicine in Action
Detailed animations & videos help illustrate pediatric procedures to exam walk-throughs, from descriptions of anatomy to the details of pathophysiology.

Test Yourself on Key Concepts and Hone Your Clinical Skills
Q&A in multiple subjects to help you ace the boards and Lange Case Files allow you to apply knowledge to real-life clinical cases.

Maximize Your Time During Your Pediatric Clerkship
Go directly to special content devoted to the needs of a pediatrics clerkship.
