The development of science and technology causes the pattern of prevention and treatment of diseases or health problems will experience progress and development so that it becomes more effective, more diverse, and more sophisticated, but more expensive. Therefore it is also required the ability to filter and screen its application in accordance with the nation’s culture and stages of development outcomes.
To meet the demands of an increasing need for better and quality health services, appropriate health workers are needed, namely professional health workers supported by mastery of science and technology in the field of child health science that is always updated.
A pediatrician is a doctor who has achieved certain competencies, professionally specializes in serving healthy children and sick children in the family and in society from conception to the end of adolescence, and has the ability to absorb, develop and disseminate his knowledge and uphold medical ethics.
Specialist Doctor Education Program (PPDS 1) Pediatric Health Sciences at the Faculty of Medicine, Airlangga University, Surabaya refers to the Educational Guide for Undergraduate and Professional Education Programs at the Faculty of Medicine, Airlangga University, and the College of Children’s Health Curriculum.
Competencies that must be mastered are not only specialized, but must also include basic competencies. Of those required competence to choose the application of knowledge in accordance with the health problems faced and the funds and facilities available, while keeping abreast of the development of science. This demand is expected to be fulfilled with high professionalism through the “evidence based medicine” approach in every case handling of children, which is applied in accordance with the noble ethics of medicine. In addition, pediatricians not only function as professionals in child health services, but also take part academically as researchers and as well as educators. To produce this dual competence of power, that is, professional as well as academics, it takes serious effort.
By broadening the spectrum of academic competencies, among others in the form of mastery of the philosophy of science, research methodology, biostastitics and basic medical science, the academic ability of graduates has fulfilled the requirements of master’s degree (master’s degree program II). These efforts can be carried out without increasing the burden of study (academic competencies range from 38-50 credits, and total credits for all educational programs range from 90-100 credits). Thus it needs to be emphasized that the education of pediatricians is a combination of specialist education and master education, which will produce pediatricians who are also masters of health sciences. This is in line with the review of the Higher Education Board of the Health Sciences Disciplinary Commission on the Development of Clinical Medicine Masters Education which in its implementation can be integrated education in the existing specialist medical education (combined degree program).
The education of pediatricians at Airlangga University from July 1997 has included students in the General Basic Course (MKDU) held by the Faculty of Medicine, Airlangga University / TKP PPDS Dr. Soetomo Hospital which has a load of 19 credits. The material given and tested is similar to the material in the concept of education of Masters – Pediatricians belonging to the Indonesian Pediatrician Association, so that the implementer of pediatrician education at the Faculty of Medicine, Airlangga University / RSUD Dr. Soetomo had no problems implementing the 2000 curriculum.
