Paediatrics (higher)

Paediatric patient with doctor

The Pan London postgraduate paediatrics (higher) programme supports paediatricians through the final three years of their specialty training (ST6-8). Throughout, trainees develop experience and capability in readiness for their certificate in completion of training (CCT) and career as a consultant.

The programme is run by a team of training programme directors and programme leads, with support from the Imperial College Healthcare Lead Provider team. There is also input from the London School of Paediatrics Trainee Committee whose ideas, energy and support are at the heart of many of the innovations within the programme.

MSc Advanced Paediatrics Course – September 2015 – King’s College London (KCL)

There are still spaces to enrol (deadline 20th September) on the MSc in Advanced Paediatrics that is running at the KCL and which is recruiting to its 5th year this September.

I have attached the flyer for your perusal plus the 2015-16 timetable for the course. The brochure details among other things that the course content is research and evidence based, with the aim of developing students into exemplary members of the interprofessional healthcare team. Past students have all agreed that undertaking the MSc has developed and enhanced their careers immeasurably.

Every year in the last 3 years, the course has been top rated in terms of educational value by trainees, nurses and pharmacists in the whole of the School of Medicine and Biomedical sciences at KCL. In addition to the advertised modules there will also be an option to do a module in Paediatric Mental Health in the second year run by Dr Max Davie.

If you have any questions about the course please do not hesitate to contact me in the first instance or Noel Graffie the Programme Administrator for the MSc. Our contact details are on the flyer. Alternatively, you can click on the link below directing to the KCL website to find out more information about the course. https://www.kcl.ac.uk/prospectus/graduate/advanced-paediatrics
