      The Certificate in Child Health is run jointly by the University of Glasgow and NHS Education for Scotland. Scottish Deaneries have offered support to this programme, and will request that all paediatric trainees in their Level 2 Specialist Training complete this programme as part of their professional training. If you are a doctor in a training programme for paediatrics currently working as a Specialist Trainee (ST) in the UK, this programme is designed for you: in particular for ST trainees post-MRCPCH who are in ST years 3, 4 or 5. The programme may also be useful for suitably qualified overseas applicants. You will gain a qualification which, in conjunction with appropriate clinical training, will satisfy the General Medical Council / RCPCH and allow you to move on to your Level 3 training.

      What you'll learn on the course

      Child health

      Course programme

      The Certificate is a mix of online and face-to-face teaching. Twenty 6-hour days of face-to-face teaching are delivered through the academic year, and these are supplemented by online lectures, formative exercises and compulsory reading. This allows a collegiate atmosphere to develop with less disruption to clinical experience. This certificate course will reward the trainees 60 units of credit on completion.

      The content is split into five compulsory sections

      • Public health, mental health, child protection and looked after children (LAC)
      • Growth, nutrition, metabolic, gastroenterology, diabetes and endocrine
      • Development, neurology and senses
      • Respiratory and cardiovascular
      • Infectious disease, immunology, renal, haematology, oncology, rheumatology and adolescent medicine.

      A trainee must take all sections spanning a maximum of four academic years but typically over two years although some trainees will manage to complete all section during one academic year.
