Hospital description

This is the eighteenth busiest children’s hospital in the US. In addition to its on site facilities, it also runs five community based clinics.

The Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) offers clerkship (elective) positions to fourth year medical students who have completed their core clerkship in pediatrics.

Clerkships are generally four weeks.

All rotations start on a Monday and complete on a Friday. All subspecialty electives are of a consultative type. Upon acceptance into our program, you will find the work essentially the same as that of our pediatric interns. You will be expected to take histories, perform physical examinations, follow patients both on the wards and in clinic, and attend lectures and seminars held here at CHOC. Medical students are considered junior members of the patient care team.
