About

This programme provides a highly marketable academic qualification for hospital practitioners and trainees, nursing, paramedical and other professionals who are involved in the multidisciplinary care of neonates and very young children.

Overview

The Postgraduate Diploma in Neonatal Medicine is open to all qualified medical doctors, nurse practitioners and other health professionals. 

This two-year part-time distance learning course focuses on the study of clinical problems and therapeutic approaches specific to neonatal healthcare. The physiological and anatomical changes that occur during gestation and after birth influence clinical presentation and effective treatment strategies for sick and premature infants.  Understanding the scientific basis for neonatal healthcare is vital to clinical decision making and managing the ethical and communication challenges faced by clinical teams every day.

The course therefore aims to provide training and education in the identification, critical appraisal, planning and implementation of more effective treatments based on a sound knowledge of relevant research evidence, clinical practice, anatomy and pathophysiology.

Core and optional modules cover respiratory, cardiovascular, neurological and nutritional care, critical care and the safe transfer of neonates/children between services and carers – all of which are crucial to improving survival rates and quality of care. The abilities to research, review, evaluate, design and plan these key components in healthcare systems represent highly marketable skills for graduates.

Throughout the taught modules, the aim is to develop your clinical, academic and research acumen in ways that integrate individual and collaborative learning. Tests of key factual knowledge are combined withonline discussions and the submission of individual written assessments which test  understanding and application of concepts. 

Distinctive features
  • The distance-learning  format gives clinicians the flexibility to gain a postgraduate qualification alongside busy jobs
  • The active involvement of clinical neonatologists and academics ensures there is both scientific rigour and relevance to day to day clinical work.
