Drawing on world-class research and teaching in paediatric infectious diseases, this programme offers a unique opportunity to gain an understanding of the principles that underpin paediatric infection, the ways in which those principles have developed, and to translate this understanding into good clinical and research practice.
The Postgraduate Diploma is a part-time two-year programme taught via a blend of online and residential components. The programme is designed to direct students through the syllabus required in Europe for clinical training in the sub-specialty. The programme will also be appropriate for those outside of Europe.
Teaching topics include:
- Infectious Syndromes
- Therapeutics and Infection Control
- Epidemiology, Immunity and Immunisation
- Bacterial Infections
- Imported Tropical Diseases and Mycobacterial Infection
- Congenital and Neonatal Infection, Sexually Transmitted Diseases, and Parasitic Disease
- The Immunocompromised Host
- Fungal Infection
Assessment is via formative elements (online case rounds, residential events and multiple choice sessions) and summative elements (written assignments, an oral presentation, and examination).
Applications for entry in September 2022 are still being accepted.
