Welcome to the Penn State College of Medicine Student Pediatric Society
The Student Pediatric Society was established by medical students with guidance from faculty members in the Department of Pediatrics to promote awareness of health care and disease prevention in children, provide advice from residents and faculty members in general pediatrics and pediatric subspecialties, and support the interaction between pediatric faculty, medical students, and the community.
There are several activities that the Student Pediatric Society is involved in including the Child Life program, Four Diamonds Fund and Child Seat Safety Rodeos. In the upcoming months, we hope to expand our organization to include more volunteer opportunities and foster an appreciation of the pediatric field.
