The Paediatric viva is an important part of the viva section and you should be able to score high in this viva. Each viva lasts 30 minutes, 15 minutes each for the two examiners. In these 30 minutes, 6 topics need to be covered. Essentially 5 minutes per topic from basics to management of the condition. There are no trick questions. The opening question is simple to get you started and feel comfortable. Competency questions are asked to check if you are safe in your approach and management. During the viva you need to move on reasonably quickly from the basic questions to management to get good scores.
