Welcome to the pediatric course
Welcome to the Pediatric course at Astrid Lindgren Children’s Hospital in Solna!
We would like to especially welcome our international students to Stockholm and to Karolinska Institutet. Our Swedish students have a great opportunity to be in an international environment at their home university which is one of KIs strategy for 2030. Our course in the spring is held in English. Take the advantage of eachother and learn of your different cultures both in- and out of the academic world.
We are looking forward to having you in the pediatric hospital teaching you how to meet children at different ages and of course how to handle worried parents. You will also learn a lot about the different diseases both common, chronic and acute in the pediatric patients. Learning the normal development and growth of the child is crucial for you to then understand the pediatric patient at the hospital or outpatient clinic.
