Developmental / Behavioral Pediatrics

The Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics rotation provides the resident exposure to both typical and atypical child development in a variety of settings including office, hospital, school, and playgroup. Residents work directly with faculty in the diagnosis and management of disorders such as ADHD and autism. In addition, they become acquainted with related subspecialty fields including developmental psychology, neuropsychology, and rehabilitative therapies.


This rotation focuses on normal newborn care.  Residents see patients in the normal newborn nursery and in the Continuing Care Nursery, which functions at an intermediate level between the NICU and routine care.

Musculoskeletal Rotation
The orthopedic Shriner's Hospital for New England, the Caribbean, and Cyprus is 5 blocks from Baystate Children’s Hospital, providing our residents a rich resource for rheumatologic and musculoskeletal problems.  Residents are also exposed to issues in sports medicine and physiatry, as well as working with our own rheumatologist.
