During the summer of their fourth year, students of the Second Faculty of Medicine have two weeks of training in Pediatrics: one week in General Pediatrics and one week in Neonatology. The majority of the international students use these weeks to experience medicine in their home countries. I, however, chose to stay in the Czech Republic to experience pediatrics in a general hospital in Nemocnice Český Krumlov.
