What are the best rotations to do during my hospital year for meeting the paediatric requirement?

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.
