Abstract [en]

Background: In Sweden there are seven Medical Schools. Some of them have existed in more than 50 years whereas the School of Medicine at Örebro University was established in 2011. The education is built as 5,5 year studies (330 ECTS credits) and the Curriculum is integrated according to the PBL system. The aim is to present our approach to the training in paediatrics.

Method: The poster presents the theoretical and clinical studies, as well as the examination and the assessment system concerning the paediatric education. The medical students in Örebro study paediatrics during the study of the theme of Reproduction and Growth. This is formed in three steps during their studies, particularly in terms 2, 6, 9. As an integrated medical curriculum students have both theoretical and practical studies during all the terms. The learning methods are base studies, seminars, lectures, simulation training, and clinic practice.

In the second term, the medical students study embryology, genetics, anatomy and have some clinical practice in the paediatric primary health center. In the sixth term, they study about the healthy newborn, child and adolescent as well as normal and retarded growth and normal development and nutrition. Students also start their training in taking medical history and doing clinical examination. In the ninth term students have focus on the sick newborn, child and adolescent. Seminars on child abuse and neglect are given with a specialized pediatrician, a specialized lawyer and social worker as teachers.

Conclusion: The theoretical aims of the paediatric curriculum are obtained through clinical practice, team base groups, case seminaria, other seminaria, lectures, and self studies. The clinical skills are obtained through clinical skills training in paediatric units and simulation training. The examination system includes a writing exam after each term as well as an examination of clinical skills and a OSCE examination after the ninth term. The assessment ofthe students in the end of each term is very good.

Take-home message: The training in paediatrics in the Medical school of Örebro is formed in three steps in an integrated form.
