Teacher's information

Students are divided into groups according to the schedule, which can be found on the board at the headquarters of the Department of Pediatric, Pavilion C, 4th floor, ISmuni Study materials

-Department of Pediatric Oncology, Brno, Černopolní 212/9,613 00 (Pavilion G, 2nd floor)

-Pediatrics classes are held in the Simulation Center on Wednesdays. Internship at SIMU is mandatory; replacing absence is problematic here. You can participate in an internship at SIMU only after studying the videos and recommended study materials and passing the Pretest!

-Department of Neonatology, The Center for Reproductive Medicine, Obilní trh 11.

* Instructions to the scheduled lectures at Department of Neonatology at the Maternity Hospital Obilní trh Where: The neonatal department’s Lecture Room is on the 1st floor next to Unit 12. You may be able to ask for directions at the information desk located to the side (park) entrance. ** In case the classroom is locked, please ask a departmental secretary for the key. The secretary’s office is located on the same floor as the classroom, only about 50 meters away form it.

*Tools, necessary to attend practical training: official university ID card, coat, slippers, stethoscope (without tools can not student attend practical training)

*Cloakroom/Children's Hospital - Department of Pediatric Medicine): Building A (at the opposite of the gatehouse – where is possible to pick up keys). Lockers must stay empty every day

*Watch the latest information on the notice board at the headquarters of the Department of Pediatrics , pavilion C, 4.floor

* It is in the interest of every student to come up early enough before beginning practical training (to find out the allocation of students into groups and particular wards)

Students are not allowed to change specified group.

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

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. Presentations are inserted into the Study Materials section.

In the 18th teaching week, substitute internships will also be announced, for which it is necessary to REGISTER at the secretariat of the pediatric clinic (bradackova.veronika@fnbrno.cz); otherwise it will not be possible to include the student in the internship.

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 Spring 2018, spring 2019, spring 2020, spring 2021, spring 2022, spring 2023, spring 2024.
