Pediatrics Student Interest Group (PedSIG)

The Keck Pediatric Student Interest Group (PedSIG) is designed to provide medical students with early exposure to the field of pediatrics. Many people are only familiar with the work of pediatricians in a general practice/outpatient clinic setting. One of our goals is to introduce students to other paths, such as academic and sub-specialty careers. In addition to bringing speakers to share their experiences during lunchtime talks, we offer you the chance to see what peds is really like through shadowing opportunities at our affiliated children’s hospitals, Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles (CHLA) and LAC+USC, as well as in private practice and other local community settings. For those interested in pediatrics already, we aim to reaffirm those goals and give you more experience to better prepare you for your future career. And for everyone else, maybe we can get you to change your mind!
