Abstract

This resource features two podcast-based learning modules focused on the assessment of proteinuria and hematuria in children. The modules are intended for medical students. They outline the key aspects of history and physical exam, describe the key investigations, and overview the etiologies of proteinuria and hematuria in children. This resource is a part of PedsCases, a series of resource that have been integrated into the third-year undergraduate pediatric medical education curriculum at the University of Alberta. PedsCases is one of the main sources recommended to students to assist in covering the core objectives of the clinical pediatric rotation and in preparing for the final examinations. Since the focus of medical education has shifted towards independent learning, PedsCases has become a complementary educational tool and has filled a niche.
