The foundational course of the Nursing of Children Programs is N721- Pediatric Physical Assessment and Clinical Decision Making which is coordinated by Dr. Lipman. This is the first clinical course for the graduate students. “Although the students in our programs are prepared to care for acute, chronically and critically ill children, it is essential to know the normal in order to identify the abnormal. The clinical decision making skills learned in this course will be the basis for the practice of students throughout their careers."
Dr. Lipman’s research on growth in children, demonstrating the inaccuracy of linear growth assessment in primary care practices, guides her lectures to the undergraduate and graduate students on the importance of growth assessment. The research has received a great deal of national press. A former student read of Dr. Lipman’s growth research in Texas prior to beginning her coursework at Penn and said, “that researcher is going to be my teacher”. In addition, Dr. Lipman developed and maintains the only registry of pediatric type 1 diabetes in Philadelphia and has shown a high incidence of type 1 diabetes in African American and Latino children.

Questions from Dr. Lipman’s clinical practice in the Division of Endocrinology at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia guide her research and her teaching. By precepting students at her clinical practice, students learn by example. Dr. Lipman demonstrates what she continually emphasizes in the classroom; the importance of assessing the entire child when formulating clinical decisions.
