Abstract—The clinical practice in pediatric outpatient is very important to medicos. The students learn how to diagnose and treat with commonly encountered disease and frequently encountered diseases, learn how to diagnose the stubborn disease, learn how to treat with emergent and critical patients and learn how to communicate with parents of sick children. However, the present practice program has its’ defect to a certain extent. The clinical practice in pediatric outpatient is too short or even canceled. The time to practice is often fixed at the end of each semester which leads to that the medicos only could see the diseases existed in that season. The practice content isn’t planed as a whole. So we could make a reformation attempt to practice in pediatric outpatient as below: 1. increase the practice time in pediatric outpatient; 2. practice disperses in four seasons; 3. the students rotate around all special clinics and emergency room; 4. the teaching method of practical operation; 5. the application of tutorial system for interns. Pediatric outpatient is the window of clinical work. The amount of patients is large, the crowd of patients is complex and varied and the kinds of disease have great variety. We should strengthen practice in pediatric outpatient so that medicos could master the necessary skills and lay a strong foundation for their further clinical work in the future.
