Course content

This programme aims to provide doctors practising or intending to practise in developing countries with a critical understanding of the evidence for the control and management of diseases in childhood with particular reference to endemic diseases in tropical countries. Students will develop their ability to appraise the evidence that underlies current practice, undertake research and lead improvements in the quality of health services delivered to children in both hospital and community settings. The curriculum reflects current national and international priorities and policies in global child health. Following the taught component, which does not include a formal hospital attachment or bed side teaching, participants complete a dissertation including a period of applied research either overseas or in Liverpool.
