Practical exam in Paediatrics!

This year we are obliged to conduct an exam consisting of two parts: practical and theoretical. The score you get in the practical part makes 30% of the final score. Passing the practical part allows you to take the theoretical part. Failing the practical part equals failing the whole exam. The same rules apply to both Polish and English-speaking students.

The whole ED was divided into 3-4 person subgroups and assigned to our tutors. The lists were sent by e-mail to group representatives. Please, agree the date and time of your exam with the tutor. Plase note, that some of them may have some days off so you should do it as soon as possible. You are not allowed to miss any other obligatory activities to take the exam.

To take the exam you have to redo all-but-one missed classes.


The score scale is from 0 to 22 points. Following items are taken into account:

  • communication with the patient and attitude towards the patient and parents (0 - 2 pts.)
  • taking history (0 - 4 pts.)
  • physical examination (0 - 4 pts.)
  • planning and reasoning diagnostics, interpretation of the diagnostic tests (0 - 4 pts.)
  • differential diagnosis, stating and explaining the initial diagnosis (0 - 4 pts.)
  • planning the therapy or presentation of therapeutic options with prognosis (0 - 4 pts.)

To pass the exam you have to collect at least 56% of maximum ie. 12 pts., without having 0 for any of the topics above.

How to redo missed classes?

You cannot take the exam in Paediatrics unless you have all missed classes redone! OK., one absence is acceptable, but according to the study regulations you should justify it. Only selected lectures can be missed (but you don't have lectures during Paediatrics!).

Any absence is treated the same way - any kind of missed acivities during the day makes the day missed.

You can redo classes as long as you don't have any other obligatory activities (you can't miss one class to redo another).

To redo classes, please contact Katarzyna Bolt, our secretary. She will check attendance lists and she will assigned a tutor with whom you'll be able to redo classes. You need to agree the day and time. Hours between 9:00 and 14:00 are preferred. Redoing classes during duties may be difficult for most physicians due to load of work. Typically, you'll be given a patient for case study and it will probably take 2-3 hours (important note for those who have a lot classes to redo ;)
