The Pediatric Interest Group (PIG) strives to educate medical students about the vast field of pediatrics by promoting student exploration of pediatrics and its subspecialties, providing opportunities for career guidance, and encouraging awareness of issues pertaining to children and their families. With these goals in mind, PIG hopes to encourage and inspire the pursuit of a career in pediatrics.
To fulfill this mission the PIG student coordinators work with pediatric residents and faculty to provide several events around the year. Through lunchtime lectures, students have the opportunity to learn about and ask questions of pediatrics or experts in pediatric research. Through resident-student mixers, students can learn more about pediatric training and ask advice about how to decide if pediatrics is right for them. Through the PIG-sponsored shadowing program, interested students are matched to a physician willing to have students spend the day with them in the clinic. Through community events, students gain exposure to the community of children at large and have the opportunity to give something back.
