Vision statement

Our core value is to benefit children in the region by providing excellent training opportunities for future paediatricians, many of whom will stay within the region. We take pride in our high quality training that ensures our CCT holders have the knowledge and people skills required to work as effective Paediatricians.

We aim to work collaboratively with all training units to create a holistic training environment that allows for optimal learning and takes the needs of adult learners into account.

The paediatric trainee is at the heart of our efforts and we aim to provide an excellent learning environment, taking personal requirements into account, as this results in happier and better trained doctors.

The long-term value of the PG Dip/MSc Child health Study

The research aims to study the usefulness of the PG Dip/ MSc Child Health - that is a compulsory part of Level-2 Paediatric training in Yorkshire & Humber - by assessing how senior trainees, consultants and career grade paediatricians feel the course helps them in their professional practice.

Volunteers needed - Please see below message from RCPCH

The RCPCH Global Health trainee reps are keen to organise an "RSM style" educational day in the north of England or Scotland; but they need your help! They are looking for trainee volunteers in the region to create a steering committee to help organise the day. This would count as organising a national teaching day, and becoming an RCPCH global health regional champion - good CV points!

International Child Health Group winter meeting 15 November 2019

This year's International Child Health Group (ICHG) winter meeting will be all about "Universal Health Coverage", this year's focus theme for the UN. The meeting will include talks about health policies, financing health systems in low and middle income countries, as well as some more clinically based talks. We will be live streaming the whole meeting, including streaming speakers from various countries around the world, to hear about their involvement with UHC. There is the opportunity to submit posters to the conference and we will be offering networking opportunities throughout the day via a pairing scheme. The conference is open to all people interested in international child health and promises to be a very interesting and exciting day!
