The History the Department
The first Department of Children Diseases was established by prof. Bukhanskyj B.P. in 1934. He’s been a Chief for 10 years, then – prof. Razumovskyj A.A became a Chief. Assistant prof. Piotrovska-Veksler had been a Chief for 1951-52, until she was replaced by assistant prof. Krasnogorskyj M.M.
Then associated prof. Mechyns’ka E.M. became a Chief of the Department. Unfortunately, we have no information, who was the teachers of the Department, were it was based and how the classes were carried out.
It was 1964 when Department of Pediatrics was established in Vinnitsa Medical Institute. Oleksandr Gnatyuk became the first Chief and was leading the Department of Childhood Diseases for 27 years. Gnatyuk M.D. has quickly and effectively organized the workflow of the Department, which was based within the Childhood Department at Pirogov Regional Clinical Hospital. In 1980 the Vinnitsa Regional Children's Hospital was established, and the Department of Childhood Deseases had moved there. Nephrology has been the leading subject for scientific researches of the Department staff. These scientific researches and clinical work were carried out for reducing the morbidity and mortality from acute and chronic diseases of children of all ages. A lot of All-Union nephrology conferences took place at the Medical Institute. The Primary Glomerulonephritis Classification was approved. Pediatric courses were teached for all of the students. Postgraduate and intern trainings constantly took place at the Department. The name of the Department was changed to Pediatrics Department #2 in 1982.
During the Gnatuyk's leading 2 habilitation and 16 MD theses were held. The staff of the Department published a lot of monographs, guidelines and textbooks for students: "Practical Nephrology of Childhood", "Practical Cardiology of Childhood. Diffusion Diseases of Connective Tissue", "Herbal Medicine in Pediatrics," "Emergency States of Childhood", "Pediatric Oncology", "Practical Pediatric Endocrinology", "Health Food for Childhood Diseases", "Perinatal Nutrition in Young Children Diseases. Infusion Therapy."
In 1973 a separate Department of Propaedeutics and Faculty Pediatrics was created. To the position of Head. Chair of the competition was chosen professor Larissa Porfirievna Reshetkina was elected as a Head of Department. Lections were hold for the third (Propaedeutic Pediatrics) and fourth (Faculty Pediatrics) courses of the Pediatric Department from 1973 to 1982. The state of the Department was presented by 5 lecturers and 2 assistants. The Base of the Department were a Children's Department with 60 beds at the 4-th City Hospital and the Children's Department with 40 beds in Vinnitsa Central Hospital. Since 1982, the amount of teaching expanded due to the Hospital Pediatrics and subtraineeship, thereby it was renamed to the Department of Pediatrics number 1. The main clinical base of the Department was the Regional Children's Hospital with 400 beds. The state of the Department has grown to 9 lecturers. The training for postgraduates and interns were constantly hold at the Department. Since 1991, pediatrician subtraineeship trainings were introduced as a cycle. Scientific field of the Department was investigations in clinical, immunological, biochemical aspects of pathological conditions of young children associated with prematurity, intrauterine growth retardation, iron deficiency, perinatal diseases and methods for treatment and rehabilitation correction of violations. During this period, three MD thesis were hold (I.S. Gorovyj, O.S. Yablon, N.M. Pahnyuscha).
Departments #1 and #2 were associated into united Department of Childhood Diseases in 1992. T. K. Nabuhotnyj became a Chief of the Department. He continued Department's scientific traditions. Under his guidance 2 habilitation (V.P. Pavlyuk and T.V.Sorokman) and 3 MD (I.V.Storogyk, N.I.Sinchyk, O.V.Katilov ) theses were hold.
Since 1998, the Department is headed by Vladimir G. Grishko. The course of medical genetics is organized, due to what the Department has received the name - Department of Childhood Diseases with a Course of Medical Genetics. The Department continues to study the problems of Pediatric Nephrology, Neonatology, Hematology, Pulmonology, Medical Genetics. A 5-year science-and-practice work is performed by Department staff on "Pyelonephritis and glomerulonephritis features of clinic and course in modern environmental conditions". A curriculum for full-time and part-time internship was developed. Methodological and practical guidelines to educate healthy children, disease prevention in young children, the organization of outpatient care in the city and the countryside, clinical examination and rehabilitation of sick childrenwere published for physicians, students, interns and nurses published.
Prof. Elena Kasyanivna Kablukova became a Chief of the Department in 2001. Keeping traditions of Department laid by it's founders, prof. A. Hnatiyk and L. Reshotkina, she continued to conduct diverse researches. Scientific studies have been devoted to the study of the etiology, pathogenesis and treatment of acute respiratory infections of childhood, namely a complication of viral respiratory infections in the central nervous system, respiratory system, and kidneys. Later the basis of scientific activity of the Department turned to the Pediatric Nephrology - studies in the incidence, early detection of kidney disease, the study of somatotypes and erythrocyte antigens in adolescents with chronic pyelonephritis, problems of nephrology care for children with nephropathies were carried out. Textbooks for students and interns, "Emergencies in Acute Viral and Bacterial Diseases of Childhood" (O.K.Kablukova), "Lectures on Clinical Neonatology" (O.S.Yablon, O.S.Rubina) were published. State Department consisted of 25 faculty members. During this period, the department held 4 habilitation (V.M.Dudnik, N.I.Tokarchuk, O.S.Yablon, T.L.Protsyuk) and 11 MD theses. In 2008, due to the creation of another Pediatrics Department, the Department was reorganized and given the name of the Department of Pediatrics number 1.
