The third edition of Pediatric Clinical Skills is a thorough treatment of the subject matter. The core chapters cover examination of the various body systems, reviewing normal findings and discussing normal variants and abnormalities.

None of the material on abnormalities is intended to replace a comprehensive discussion of disease states but rather serves as an introduction and leads the examiner to consider diagnoses during examination. The text introduces basic history-taking skills, with particular focus on the family interviewing necessary in pediatrics. It also addresses interviewing with sensitivity to the older child and adolescent patient.
