Students assigned to the Maimonides Children's Hospital outpatient block will spend two weeks at the Maimonides Pediatric Ambulatory Center at 1301 57th Street (corner of 57th Street and Thirteenth Avenue) in Brooklyn. They will participate in the outpatient care of both well-child visits and walk-in visits with the residents and attendings. Each week they will meet with a site preceptor at the clinic to help oversee the rotation and enrich their education. Most days will begin with didactic sessions at the medical center (schedule will be dispensed in the orientation packet); students will then take a shuttle to the clinic site. The nearest subway stop to the clinic is 55th Street on the D train.
The Pediatric Primary Care clinic is located on the second and third floors of the Maimonides building at 1301 57th Street (at 13th Avenue), Brooklyn, NY, 11219. It is a two-floor facility with 20 examination rooms for both continuity/well-care visits as well as urgent care visits. We see children from newborn through age 21. The main reception desk phone number is (718) 283-3640. (We recommend you try alternative numbers listed here as this is also the patient access number.)
The clinic is open from 9am to 5pm. The morning session begins promptly at 9am and ends at noon. The afternoon session begins at 1pm and ends between 4:30pm and 6pm. You are expected to report to the clinic with the residents after morning conference; if there is no morning conference then you are expected at the clinic at 9am.
The clinic is within walking distance from Maimonides. You may also take advantage of the shuttle service from the hospital – ask the residents or a Chief Resident for the schedule. If you are coming directly to the clinic from home, the nearest subway stop is the 55th Street stop on the D train.
You will be expected to perform a complete history and physical exam, with a clear well-formulated, age-appropriate plan as is appropriate for each clinical area. A copy of the scheduled well child visits at every age will be distributed on the first day. Please make every effort to learn this – it WILL come up on your exams!
