At the conclusion of the rotation, the resident should be able to perform pediatric hernia repair and appendectomy independently. The clinical experience should solidify their knowledge of pediatric surgery topics. They should gain an understanding of and facility with the psychosocial, socioeconomic, and cultural aspects of pediatric surgical care.
