In order to monitor whether paediatric education has adapted to meet modern practice 91 paediatric advanced trainees were surveyed to elicit their satisfaction with developmental-behavioural (DB) training.
A response of 69% was obtained to a postal questionnaire.
The traditional imbalance persists, with trainees considering themselves significantly better informed in the medical disciplines (P<0.001).
Satisfaction with training in the 14 developmental disciplines surveyed is less (P<0.001) and significantly more variable compared with 11 traditional medical disciplines (P<0.01).
Formal rotations in DB disciplines had been received by all respondents by the 7th year of training.
However, 46-67% consider themselves ill-informed in learning/school problems, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, adolescent problems, paediatric rehabilitation and language impairment.
