The syllabuses of fundamental sciences are very close to those of the “General Medicine”, however much attention is paid to the peculiarities of the vitality of the infantile organisms. Of the multitude of clinical subjects, students study pediatrics and surgery of a child’s age. Those, who successfully complete their education, acquire the diploma of a pediatrician and can be engaged in treating patients at children’s hospitals, continue their study, and be involved in research work.

A doctor-pediatrician must be a high-educated person, possess wide knowledge in the field of biological, medical, and special sciences and be not only a doctor but also an educator. A student receives general biological and medical education at first courses; the pediatrics education starts from the third course to the sixth course. Students of the pediatrics faculty master knowledge at many chairs during 6 years of study, where they study anatomy, physiology, pathology, and hygiene of childish age.

After passing state exams all the students with diplomas of doctors-pediatrician go to children’s medical and prophylactic establishments for passing the internship for one year. The internship gives me an opportunity to specialize in the earlier chosen pediatrician profession.

Graduates of the pediatrics faculty the doctors-pediatricians work in all parts of our country. Some of them became scientists, others – practical doctors.
