Paediatrics Developmental Milestones made picturisquely easy!

BEHOLD, Paediatricians…
Liyeung’s most lovable creation yet -Developmental Milestones Pictorialized

Due to my weird obsession of drawing babies and kiddos, I find it quite difficult to resist drawing something during my paediatrics rotation, despite the fact that it’s just 13 days from paediatrics end-of-rotation exam.

I’m sorry I’m a tad bit late in uploading this cos many of you have already done the neurological clinical assessment, but hope this helps for your written exam and osce too!

hehe, sit back and enjoy =)

  5. Nancy says:

    Love your drawings. I would love to purchase the ones of the babies and reflexes. How can I get them?

  6. Leah says:

    I too LOVE your drawing!! As I was searching for developmental milestone coloring pages, I stumbled across your magnificent renderings. I work predominantly with underprivileged new mothers and fathers that often have limited English proficiency or struggle with illiteracy. I have found that in working with this population a picture speaks a thousand words. I have been unable to find, until now, easy to understand drawings that illustrate what they should see happing with their Baby. Like Nancy, how can I obtain your drawings to use as a tool to help the families that I serve?

  7. This is great! :) Just learning these now, and this came up when I googled for images. What a fab idea.

  9. [...] Having now settled on the topic of ‘Developmental Milestones’ in Paediatric Medicine as the focus of my final online resource I feel quite excited and eager to get started with the process. Having always had a strong¬†interest in this specialty makes me all the more passionate about producing an effective final tutorial that will successfully aid others in their understanding of this potentially difficult area. I have spent this weekend researching what resources are already available on this topic, especially artistic resources, and one which has stood out for me is (found at http://artlog.liyeung.com/?p=6): [...]
