Course content

This new Master's degree will provide an in-depth knowledge of the theory and practical skills of clinical paediatrics, including pathology, diagnosis and management. The programme combines lectures and seminars at the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health in year one with direct exposure to clinical practice in Great Ormond Street Hospital in year two.

The UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health pursues an integrated, multidisciplinary approach to enhance understanding, diagnosis, therapy and prevention of childhood diseases. Our research and our 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. Students benefit from excellent facilities in both laboratory and non-laboratory subjects.
