About

This comprehensive Paediatrics and Child Health - Community Child Health programme is based at UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health (UCL GOS ICH) from University College London (UCL).

Overview

As a student in this Paediatrics and Child Health - Community Child Health programme from University College London (UCL), you will benefit from the unique position the institute occupies within UK paediatrics. We bring together strong links to Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children with our setting within the powerful teaching and research environment of UCL.

The Paediatrics and Child Health: Community Child Health programme will provide you with public-health skills central to community child health practice. You will build an awareness of current and future developments in community child health and gain the skills necessary to critically appraise practice and policy, and undertake independent research if the full MSc is taken.

Teaching and learning

The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials and research project supervision. Assessment is through a combination of multiple choice questions and short-answer question examinations, essays, posters, presentations, reflective portfolios, critical appraisal of literature and, if the full MSc is taken, the dissertation, including an oral presentation.

Careers

This programme provides the skills necessary to become a community health practitioner. On graduation, you will be able to assess the need for child health services and planning of services, and understand the rationale and organisation of preventive child health services and the relationship between social conditions and health.

Employability

As a graduate of this programme, you will have valuable academic and clinical skills in community practice which you will be able to employ in the workplace. Graduates based in the UK can continue in their career pathway in community child health.
