The Medicine (Child and Adolescent Health) program at the University of Sydney provides you with the core knowledge and clinical decision making skills required for day-to-day paediatric practice. 


The Medicine (Child and Adolescent Health) program at the University of Sydney covers a broad range of case-based practical and relevant subjects, allowing clinicians to increase their understanding of how to provide the best healthcare for children. As a child and adolescent health student, you will learn from Sydney Medical School's highly regarded clinical, education and research staff in the Discipline of Child and Adolescent Health, based at the Children's Hospital at Westmead. The program reflects their clinical and academic expertise in a wide range of areas, including allergy, immunisation, infectious diseases and child obesity. 

Students will gain a practical and theoretical foundation in paediatrics, from newborns to adolescents. Coursework is case-based and you can study at a basic or advanced level. It is facilitated by subspecialty experts who will guide your learning and facilitate valuable interactions within your student group. Designed for working professionals, our courses are offered in the format of online distance education, allowing flexible integration of your studies with your professional and personal life.

The Master of Medicine (Child and Adolescent Health) is suitable for all doctors interested in child and adolescent health, regardless of seniority or experience. We welcome doctors who are working in general practice or specialty paediatrics, in the community or in a hospital, who wish to pursue a career in paediatrics or who simply wish to improve their knowledge and skills in child and adolescent health.

Career Pathways

Our courses offer a great number of graduate opportunities depending on what stage you are at in your career and what your future goals may be. These courses will be extremely useful for preparation for paediatric specialty training and examinations. Our courses in paediatric medicine can also be useful for those who wish to specialise in areas of medicine other than paediatrics that still require a thorough understanding of paediatric medicine, such as general practice.
