Abstract

Modernization of education within the system of higher education in Ukraine and rapid progress of medical technologies make it necessary to search for new and more effective teaching methods at clinical residency by “neonatology” specialty. The significance of independent work of a clinical resident neonatologist increases day by day due to changing methods of teaching at higher education institutions, rapid European integration of Ukraine and the reforming process of the medical training system in particular. According to the Law on Higher Education in Ukraine, the department of pediatrics, neonatology and childhood infections of Donetsk National Medical University (DNMU) has begun the development of a teaching program called “Portfolio of a clinical resident neonatologist” and its control as a teaching method at clinical residency.
The relevance of the “Portfolio of a clinical resident neonatologist” program is in the display of professional potential and its competitiveness in conditions of European “market” of medical specialists which is highly important not only during training at clinical residency but also in further work of healthcare system in Ukraine. “Portfolio of a clinical resident neonatologist” program consists of 6 sections: “Private information”, “Personal development plan”, “Practical work”, “Independent work”, “Academic work”, “External evaluation”. The basis of “Portfolio of a clinical resident neonatologist” program at the department of pediatrics, neonatology and childhood infections of DNMU includes fulfillment of such important tasks as: professional capacity building; development of self-employment ability; thorough in-depth study of related disciplines; fixation of individual work performed by a clinical resident with further accentuation of educational process according to his interests; the rise of responsibi­lity and independence in terms of organization of educational process; right self-esteem building and external evaluation of a clinical resident’s work; base creation for system control for follow-up of patients. The developed model of “Portfolio of a clinical resident neonatologist” allows to select an individual approach to each student, to identify their strengths and weaknesses with the help of step by step evaluation of work performed, which, in turn, will help to achieve the best result at the stage of neonatology specialty improvement done by a clinical resident.
