The data collection tool was a structured test titled measuring the level of students' knowledge and awareness of pediatric outpatient drugs, based on the variables studied. Data analysis was done using descriptive statistical methods (mean and frequency of standard deviation) and analysis of covariance test.

Results: The mean and standard deviation of the interns' knowledge in the pre-test was 5.93±0.57 in the control group and 5.93±0.57 in the intervention group, and in the post-test the mean and standard deviation of the interns' knowledge in the control group (13.89±1.28) and intervention group (16.82±1.34). The average scores of the two control and intervention groups in the post-test were significant (p=0.001), which indicates the effect of the complementary educational program of pediatric outpatient medicine in the intervention group.
