Abstract

This article describes the implementation and outcomes of a pediatric clinical education pilot project at a weekend overnight camp for children with special needs. Nine junior-level baccalaureate students participated in the immersion experience. The course skill inventory, an instructor-led postconference, a focus group session, and online forum entries were used to evaluate the experience. The evidence suggests that students gained a wide variety of psychomotor skills and patient-centered care attitudes. Although scheduling was challenging, we concluded the camp clinical was an enlightening and positive experience that offered opportunities not readily available in the hospital setting.
