Dear colleagues and students!
I congratulate you on your professional holiday – Pediatrician Day!
Having chosen your profession, you have taken responsibility for the most important thing for every parent – the well-being of a child. Every day you give attention, love, and care to young patients, providing them with a high-quality and fulfilling life.
The OSMU Faculty of Pediatrics serves for the benefit of the Regional pediatric healthcare. Being one of the first in Siberia and the Far East, the Faculty has founded the pediatric school of the Omsk Irtysh Region famous all around the world! Nowadays, Regional pediatric school is flourishing with scientific discoveries and academic achievements, raising the best pediatricians in Russia and glorifying our University.
Your profession requires not only deep knowledge, exceptional professional competence, but also emotional involvement, kindness, trusting relationships with a child and his parents. Being a part of the professional community of pediatricians is a great happiness!
I wish all pediatricians sincere and genuine love for their work. May little patients see you as a kind wizard in a white coat from a fairy tale! May all your patients recover, becoming happy and cheerful.
