Objectives

In the teaching-learning program of Pediatrics we expect the students to acquire knowledge, attitudes and skills that allow them to learn clinical practice, in the 6th year.
The aims integrate 3 components.
1. Knowledge. The students must obtain information on: Community Pediatrics, Infantile Health, the child's specificity and screening deviations from normal; feeding and nutrition; growth and the healthy child's development, integrated in the family and social atmosphere; basic pediatric life support and the recognition of a seriously sick child; semiology, study and therapeutics of the most common pathologies in the different age groups;
2. Attitudes. The students must assess: the ethics and the deontology; the doctor/child/family relationship; the personality and the human being's individuality in growth; the multidisciplinar collaboration in Pediatrics; Social Pediatrics; the primary care in infantile health; the specificity of the Pediatric Medicine (growth and development); the prevention of disease and maintenance of the child's global health and of the adolescent in the family and in the community; the health education.

Programme

The following themes are considered: clinical history; physical examination; normal and pathological growth; psychomotor development (developmental periods, normal and pathological evolution of development, characteristics of different age periods of the neonate to the adolescent); the normal neonate; neurological examination of the neonate; more frequent pathology in the neonate (sepsis, reanimation, breathing difficulty syndromes, jaundice, metabolic alterations, asphyxia, convulsions); feeding in childhood (nutritional needs and alimentary programs) and assessment and nutritional pathology; vaccines; semiology of pediatric and adolescent pathology; oral health; pathology of different diseases namely acute gastroenteritis, chronic intestinal disease, hydroelectrolitic unbalance, respiratory infection, chronic respiratory disease, urinary infection, febrile convulsions, surgical pathology, congenital cardiac disease; prevention of accidents, abused child; basic life support and the recognition of a seriously sick child.

Teaching methods and learning activities

As methodology in the teaching-learning program of Pediatrics we use lectures, seminars, practical sessions and clinical training.
Duration of the block: 5 weeks, with a weekly workload of 32 hours. The block is divided in 6 groups. The following pedagogical modalities will be used: Lectures: 5 lectures of 1h a week (5h weekly). Seminars: 1 per week of 1 h duration. Practical sessions: 2 per week, of 2h duration each (4h weekly). The remaining workload is devoted to the clinical training in the wards (23h weekly).
The students are distributed by 5 blocks with about 28 students each. In each block the students are divided into the wards of the Pediatrics Service. In rotation, they participate in the daily observation of the neonate, in the Obstetrics Service. All of the students will accomplish a weekly period of 4 hours in the Emergency Service of Pediatrics. The students are orientated by the Doctors from the Pediatrics Department (Trainees, Hospital Assistants and Heads of Service). Each professor is responsible for monitoring student attendance.
