Diploma of Specialized Studies - Pediatrics

Hybrid

Mission

The pediatrics residency program mission provides residents with a broad exposure to the health care of children and substantial experience in the management of diverse pediatric pathologic conditions. Primary care, preventive health care, ethical issues, and discussions of the cost of diagnostic tests, procedures, and therapies are all a part of this program. Also, the program will introduce them to subspecialties of child medicine.

Program Educational Objectives

1. Graduates must use their basic and clinical knowledge acquired during the specialization path in...
order to support and treat the patient within the specialty, but without forgetting their skills in general practice.
2. Must support the patient psychologically and morally, and the family and entourage for better therapeutic compliance.
3. Must improve their knowledge and skills in parallel to the new technological discoveries and put them to the service of patients according to the rules of professionalism and ethics.
4. Have to practice their profession in accordance with the principles of quality, in particular the principles of efficiency and equity.
5. Must share their knowledge and promote prevention principles and other public health principles.

Program Outcomes

At the end of the program, the young pediatricians will:
a. Master the basic knowledge and clinical knowledge of child medicine in order to analyze the clinical situation, to propose a course of action and the appropriate treatment and be ready to act quickly in urgent cases.
b. Acquire knowledge in all pediatric specialties.
c. Be able to take charge of a patient and provide moral and psychological support to the patient and entourage.
d. Be prepared to use new knowledge and new techniques to improve their practice.

Common Core
MEDR913Basic Principles in Pediatrics
3 credits
This course is essential to check that residents have acquired the basics during their M.D. and to guide them to the specific resources of their specialty. It will lead them to understand the challenges faced by children living in resource­poor settings.
MEDR914General Pediatrics Guidelines
3 credits
The guidelines are developed by the AAP in response to the lack of standardized guidelines for international health training in pediatric residencies. Residents are encouraged to utilize and adapt these guidelines to assess their progress in meeting the objectives of their training.
MEDR912Pediatric and Neonatal Resuscitation
3 credits
This course is an educational program that introduces the concepts and basic skills of pediatric and neonatal resuscitation. By completing this course, the teachers are responsible for determining the level of competence and qualifications required for residents to assume clinical responsibility for resuscitation cases in hospital.
MEDR902Pediatric Emergencies
3 credits
This course gives students a clear indication of what they need to prioritize. It provides an educational road map. At the end of this course, the learners should be able to manage all situations in the emergency room, like interpreting a standardized ECG, and list a differential diagnosis to all essential pathologies received in ED. This course is more practical than theoretical. It is a process of collecting, synthesizing, and interpreting information to aid decision-making.

MEDR930ASeminars and Conferences
Seminars and conferences represent both a learning and assessment tool knowing that the theoretical education of the resident remains mostly a personal work that begins with reading books and articles, preparing conferences and is ongoing with continuing medical education and self­learning (erudition). During development, the “apprentice doctors” must initially attend and listen to their elders, then submit records to the staff, then present lectures to peers and seniors locally (hospital) and in a local congress and finally in an international congress. In parallel and concerning teaching, it begins with clinical teaching to the youngest and finishes during university courses.
