Paediatric infectious diseases

Flexible postgraduate courses

In partnership with the Department of Paediatrics

Students are encouraged to develop an understanding of the principles underpinning infection, and to translate this into good clinical and research practice.  The programme directs students through the syllabus required in the European Union for clinical training in paediatric infectious diseases, and is also appropriate for those outside the EU.

"The course has provided me with a framework of how to approach clinical problems and the importance of evidence-based medicine. It has enriched my clinical experience whilst working as a trainee in Paediatric Infectious Diseases."
