This part time course will complement and supplement clinical experience gained in the course of your paediatric training – whether in a Specialist Registrar, ST4-6, or Speciality Doctor post. It will help develop your critical thinking, increase your skills in communication and managerial issues, and provide a framework for peer support and self-directed learning. The taught course extends over two academic years and comprises 12 five-day modules.
Teaching takes place on a Wednesday and is principally in seminars, with some formal lectures. All taught modules have one or more assignments which may be summative or formative in nature. Assignment types are varied and include: written essays, clinical examinations, group projects and writing articles for submission to peer reviewed journals. You will also keep a Portfolio of selfdirected learning. At the end of the taught course you will be examined orally on either your Portfolio (PGDip) or your research
In the third year (MSc only) you will undertake and write up an original research project under supervision (based on your 2nd year proposal) in an area relevant to paediatrics and child health. You will be examined orally on this at the end of year 3.
If you wish to take up a career in any aspect of paediatrics and child health, this course will provide you with a broad foundation for your career development and continuing medical education.
