PURPOSE: The program utilizes the interdisciplinary approach to clinical problem solving. The focus is on the patient with a craniofacial anomaly whose needs are refractory to solution by the uni-disciplinary approach. The student will work under the tutelage of the staff pediatrician, and have opportunities for interaction with specialists in craniofacial surgery, plastic surgery, orthodontics, behavioral science, computer science, dentistry, genetics, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, pediatrics, and speech and hearing  pathology.


The student will assist in the work-up of the patient, evaluation and summarization of the data base. Clinical experience will be augmented with seminar sessions covering dysmorphology, epidemiology, speech and hearing problems, genetics, and counseling.
