Completion of the subject Pediatrics I, II, III with an examination
In year 5, just after completion of the 3rd module in Paediatrics, the students will need to sit an exam. The exam will essentially take the form of a written test which will include questions from pediatric propedeutics and topics discussed at seminars (autumn semester - Pediatrics II and spring semester - Pediatrics III). Test contains 20 questions and 1 out of 4 answers will always be correct (the right answer will be circled). See the list of recommended literature for preparation for the exam. The test will be written on Fridays (last day of the internship) in the morning. The total test time will be 1 hour. Students who fail the written test will need to sit an oral examination on the same day. Those who fail the oral examination will repeat the test at the end of the semester in the so-called "substitutional" week (18th week).
Test rating:
A 20-19 correct answers
B 18-17 correct answers
C 16-15 correct answers
D 14-13 correct answers
E 12-11 correct answers
F 10 and less correct answers

Student who will come more than 15 minutes later is not allowed to participate in practical training or seminar.

Students are not allowed to change specified group.

In accordance to The MU Study and Examination Regulations all practical education and lectures are obligatory.

Absence in tuition and make up classes

Without an excuse, it is possible to miss 10% of the total internship time. In practice, this means either one bedside teaching or one seminar. All absences above the allowed limit must be made up for. A planned exam in a different subject on a given internship day is not a valid excuse. To make up for the absence at the bedside teaching session, the students are expected to agree on a new tuition time with a relevant assistant (the one whose class they missed). The absence in seminar could be amended by attending another seminar with a different group of students, where same topic is discussed. Please be aware, there might not be same-topic seminar scheduled in convenient time scale. The students might also choose to make up for asences in either tuition during "the substitutional" week (18th week).

The signature and the name tag of the teacher must ALWAYS be stated on the attendance list.

The course is also listed under the following terms Autumn 2017, Spring 2018, autumn 2018, spring 2019, autumn 2019, spring 2020, spring 2021.
