The best hospital rotations to prepare you for GP training are in paediatric emergency or general emergency with a good presentation of paediatric cases and where the RMO is the first to see them. This gives you experience in diagnosing and treating seriously ill children. A sub-specialty paediatric term (neurology or neonatal intensive care for example), whilst valuable in itself, does not give the same opportunity for initial diagnosis. However, these sub-specialty terms will still meet the requirement if completed in conjunction with sufficient paediatric emergency or mixed emergency time.
