Course content

This programme is based at UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health (UCL GOS ICH), benefiting from the unique position the institute occupies within UK paediatrics and child health. This programme consists of your choice of four modules. Upon successful completion of 60 credits, you will be awarded a PG Certificate in Paediatrics and Child Health.

UCL GOS ICH pursues an integrated, multidisciplinary approach to enhance understanding, diagnosis, therapy and prevention of childhood diseases. Our research and educational portfolio covers a broad range of paediatric issues, from molecular genetics to population health sciences, and our structure facilitates interdisciplinary work and allows flexibility for the development of new areas of investigation.

Our close relationship with the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children means that much of our research and teaching is carried out on a joint basis. You will benefit from excellent facilities in both laboratory and non-laboratory subjects.
