About

The Postgraduate Diploma in Paediatric Infectious Diseases from the University of Oxford is a part-time course designed to direct students through the syllabus required in the EU for clinical training in the subspecialty. The course is appropriate for those outside the EU. www.conted.ox.ac.uk/pgdip-in-paediatric-infectious-diseases

Overview

About this course

Worldwide, two-thirds of the deaths of children under five years of age are caused by infectious diseases, and the prevention and treatment of infections in children is the number one priority for global health. Thus, the department believes that professionally-oriented education in paediatric infectious diseases is essential in the training of clinicians and clinical academics who will provide the future leadership in this key area for global health. 

The Postgraduate Diploma in Paediatric Infectious Diseases from the University of Oxford is a two-year, part-time course taught primarily online (with some residential components), providing you with an in-depth understanding of both the theoretical and practical aspects of paediatric infection. It also places the practice of paediatric infectious diseases in the broader context of applied sciences, such as pathogenesis, population biology and epidemiology. 

The course will appeal to doctors who have experience in paediatrics, including trainees in paediatrics who have a specialist qualification equivalent to the Membership Examination of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (MRCPCH), specialist trainees in paediatric infectious diseases or relevant medical subspecialties, and clinical research fellows.
