The focus of training in pediatrics shall be the disorders seen and managed at primary health center 8 tertiary level hospital or in general practice. The subcommittee identified topics which students must know and those they should know in view of the high contribution of neonatal mortality (over 60%) to infant mortality rate, it is recommended that about 25% of didactic and bedside clinical teaching in pediatrics should be devoted to neonatology.


The didactic teaching in the from of lectures should be restricted to one-third of the teaching program. It is desirable to outline the objectives cope and contents of each lecture so the teacher is provided with detailed guidelines to cover essential aspects of the topic. The national programmes pertaining to maternal and child health should be taught by the faculty of department of Pediatrics & collobaration of community medicine.

The curriculum content will be viewed as 25 MODULES as listed in detail hereunder. Intermediate objectives for each module and specific objectives for each unit within each module will have to be defined as the next step once the medical council of India approves the present syllabus as below.
