The 23rd edition of The Harriet Lane Handbook, known as the “bible of pediatrics”, is now available. Named in honor of Harriet Lane, the founder of Johns Hopkins Medicine’s first children’s clinic, the handbook has been published every three years since 1953. It is compiled and updated by chief pediatrics residents in the Harriet Lane Pediatric Residency Program, in consultation with faculty and staff advisers.
Available in over 20 languages, the handbook has evolved to provide the most up-to-date information for healthcare professionals who treat young patients. The latest edition includes updated guidance on a variety of topics, including COVID-19, which has changed significantly since the previous edition from June 2020. In addition, it includes “podcast-style” audio companion case files, featuring interviews with Johns Hopkins Children’s Center experts on pediatric-focused topics.
The book is available for purchase online through Elsevier, as well as Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other online retailers. All royalties are used exclusively to support the pediatric residency program.
