This course covers pediatric concepts that are essential for all medical students. The curriculum is modeled after the COMSEP and NBME examination (see Educational Resources). In addition, students are required to complement this clinical training with self-learning endeavors (e.g., using educational resources listed later). Self-learning is the only way to ensure acquisition of all core pediatric foundations listed in this booklet and elsewhere. By the end of the rotations, students will gain clinical (bedside) experience, in addition to didactic learning. They are expected to become competent in these six domains: History taking, Physical examination, Problem list, Differential diagnosis, Investigation, and Management (especially of common/ important conditions).
This course allows students to act as sub-interns in the hospital by being an integral part of the hospital team, provide them with autonomy and independence while retaining reasonable didactic teaching. There are various components for this course including hospital attachment, afternoon teaching sessions and on-calls. Assessment will be done throughout the course based on attendance, mini-clinical evaluation exercise (Mini-ClEx), hospital evaluation, case presentation and documentation. At the end of the rotation students have clinical examination and NBME assessments. Each student will have a logbook to record attendance, participation in sessions, and practical procedures performed which must be signed by the attending tutor.
