Scientific student club


Since the 70's at the Department of Pediatrics №4 has been actively functioning scientific student club. The heads of the club were Associate Professor Kulik N.Ya., Associate Professor Dadakina M.A., Professor Khaytovich M.V., Professor Mityuryaeva-Korniyko I.O.

Classes include the individual work of each class member under the guidance of the department teacher and team meetings dedicated to the specific skills that the scientist should acquire (methodology for writing an analytical review of literature, planning for research, writing abstracts, articles and articles). At the meeting, students can listen to scientific reports of teachers and their colleagues, to present their work. To improve the educational and cognitive activity. Different innovative technologies that activate the educational process is introduced for this purpose. Some meetings of the group are conducted using method of situational analysis and game design.

Active participants of the group are students of 2-6 courses. Total number of circles is 30-34, depending on the school year. Members of the club actively participate in Ukrainian and foreign conferences. In recent years their results have been presented in Poland, Netherlands, Austria, and Portugal.

Students Druzenko M.G. (co-authors – A.A. Vodianyk, E.A. Grechukha) - received 1st place at the A.O. Grant Conference in Bogomolets netional Medical University in 2016 presenting the work "Features of the influence of biofilm formation on the activity and chronicity of pyelonephritis in children and the possibility of correction”.

The Department of Pediatrics № 4 holds an annual scientific and practical conference with international participation "INTERDISCIPLINARY APPROACHES TO DIAGNOSTICS AND TREATMENT OF CHILD DISEASES", which is included in the Register of Scientific Events of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine. Students of the club take an active part in conference.

You can find detailed information about the conferences at: http://pediatrics.kiev.ua/4.1.html

Since 2019, the scientific leader of the club - the candidate of medical sciences, Associate Professor Anna Gnyloskurenko

A student chief of the club – Ilana Palets (sudent of the Medical Faculty №4).

Meetings have place once a month (at 4 pm, Tolstogo street, 10, lecture room of the Department of Pediatrics № 4).

Since 2019, a section for foreign students established.


Scientific work of the Department of Pediatrics № 4

Responsible for scientific work - Professor of the Department Mityuryaeva-Korniyko IO


Main directions of scientific work:


- Hypertension in children and adolescents

- Type I diabetes in children and adolescents

- School maladaptation in children

- Enuresis

- Psychosomatic aspects of diseases of the cardiovascular system in children

- Chronic gastroduodenitis and reflux disease in children


The scientific work of the department is aimed at solving the most urgent problems of clinical pediatrics and is carried out in close cooperation with research institutions of the National Academy of Sciences, laboratories that allowed to make a significant contribution to the development of pediatric science in our country.

Therefore, in collaboration with Institute of Physiology the role of genetic polymorphisms of different gene ensembles in the genesis of type 1 diabetes, as well as the interrelation of sleep- wake cycle and obesity studied. Together with the Institute of Hydromechanics of the National Academy of Science of Ukraine a computer complex for phonospirographic diagnostics of respiratory diseases in children was developed, the diagnostic efficiency of the method in the diagnosis of pneumonia, monitoring of the treatment efficiency conducted. In collaboration with the National University of Life and Environmental of the National Academy of Science of Ukraine, State Institution «Institute of Urology of the National Academy of Medical Science of Ukraine», R.E. Kavetskiy Institute of Experimental Pathology, Oncology and Radiobiology the ability of biofilm, different bacteria and their role in the emergence and course of urinary tract infections studied. In recent years, the department has widely implemented modern methods of instrumental diagnostics, some of which are simply unique. First of all, the method of estimation of the state of the autonomic nervous system with the help of cutaneous sympathetic potentials and the method of electroneuromyography, computer spirography for assessment of the function of external respiration and respirosonography in children, as well as remote computer thermography for the diagnosis of various diseases were introduced. Daily monitoring of blood pressure, ECG and assessment of heart rate variability in children, assessment of urodynamics of the lower urinary tract with the help of computer neuroelectrophysic complex established.

Currently, the department is carrying out an initiative research work "Development of criteria for diagnosis and substantiation of therapeutic tactics of metabolic disorders in pathology of the cardiovascular, endocrine and urinary system in children" (2018-2020). New methods of diagnostics, treatment and prevention of childhood diseases, developed by the staff of the department, are protected by copyright certificates on inventions and patents, as well as innovative proposals. Materials of scientific developments are the basis of methodological recommendations and information sheets, issued for implementation in children's health care and preventive health care institutions.
