Publisher's Summary

Pediatrics, which focuses on the medical care of children from birth through adolescence, is one of the most fascinating areas of modern medicine. To step into the shoes of a trained pediatrician is to better understand how these medical heroes diagnose common and uncommon illnesses in their young patients, helping each child grow into his or her greatest potential.
In these 24 lectures, don the doctor's white coat for an accessible journey into the world of pediatric medicine to solve medical mysteries. Each of these standalone lectures presents you with a case or series of cases that you tackle alongside Dr. Benaroch, from initial symptoms and workup to the diagnosis and resulting treatment.
You'll quickly see just how multifaceted and nuanced the medical treatment of children is, whether dealing with minor diagnoses like runny noses and ear infections or life-changing ones like cerebral palsy and neonatal pneumonia. But sometimes children have concerns that extend beyond the traditional realm of medicine. In addition to the fascinating facts and compelling stories he shares, Dr. Benaroch has crafted the perfect tool for parents and caretakers who want a panic-free resource for their child's health and wellness, including issues surrounding sleep, discipline, and mental health.
Whether he's dealing with a premature infant, complications arising with international adoption, or a homeless youth, Dr. Benaroch treats every case in this course with care and compassion. You'll quickly learn how the best pediatricians are also caretakers and counselors and why the experience of helping sick children is exciting and rewarding - especially when it transforms lives for the better.

Excellent cases for medical professional and lay person alike

The cases were engaging and informative; as a med student, I still found the level of detail as a great review of conditions. Would recommend to anyone who is interested in learning how medical professionals approach case presentations, navigate a differential diagnosis and triage care. My one issue was the discussion of gender and sex was slightly inaccurate (sex is what someone is born with, gender is a social construct - the lecture presented this the other way around), but overall thought bringing this up in the context of pediatric care was excellent.
