About the profession
Attention to children's health has always been a priority for society and the state. A pediatrician cares for a child since birth. Children under one year must undergo several health checkups and medical examinations. This system aims to detect pathologies as early as possible and proceed to their elimination. A pediatrician plays a key role in this process. Constant professional and intellectual growth can be considered another advantage of the profession of a pediatrician, since this profession requires constant development. And most importantly, any practicing pediatrician supposes that the parents’ gratitude, as well as a healthy and happy baby, is the best reward for his work and talent. At the same time, pediatricians think that positive emotions they experience in the communication with small patients, not only help them to perform their work qualitatively, but also prolong their lives.
The educational residency programme "Pediatrics" is developed for people with higher medical education, aimed at training highly qualified specialists in the field of diagnosis, prevention and treatment of childhood diseases. Training is practically oriented and aimed at the formation of system knowledge and professional competences that allow carrying out medical activities.
Medical residents are distributed to the units of the clinical sites of the department, where, under the guidance of professors of the department, they have the opportunity both to expand their knowledge and see its application in practice. Students analyze clinical events and this provides the opportunity to obtain a wealth of clinical experience during residency training.
Graduates of the residency programme “Pediatrics” can work in outpatient, inpatient and specialized healthcare institutions that provide medical care to children and adolescents, as well as in multidisciplinary medical institutions that have pediatric units in their structure. Upon completion of the residency programme, the students have the opportunity to enroll in the postgraduate programme on the specialization “Pediatrics”.
