For students attending the course Pediatric Surgery course code 2LK111

During part Development, all students are placed one week at the pediatric surgeon in Astrid Lindgren's Children's Hospital Solna. The goal of the pediatric surgical week is that you should learn to handle common pediatric surgical, urological and orthopedic diagnoses, and become familiar with some of the most common malformations.


Course layout:

The course includes seminars, a half-day clinical outpatient placement, an evening or weekend on call in the emergency room (or, as far as events occur, with the pediatric surgeon on-call), and the opportunity to auscultate in the operating room. At the end of the course we have a summarizing seminar where we discuss interesting cases and a Kahoot quiz as a self test to evaluate what you have learned. The quiz is a self test, not an examination. You should prepare for the seminars by going through a few cases of respective subject, you fin d more information under the tab "Seminars" and "Surgery cases and handouts".

For each week there is a detailed schedule for seminars and an individual clinical placement schedule. Please see an example of how a pediatric surgery schedule may look like below. 

The pediatric surgery schedule is presented in Canvas at latest 2 weeks prior to the course starts.
