About the programme

Our programme has been designed to provide the educational background required for clinicians managing medical emergencies in children.


The educational aims of this programme are:

  • To provide students with a firm grasp of the science and pathophysiology underpinning current understanding of paediatric emergency practice.
  • To provide students with a deeper understanding of the principles and practice of the management of paediatric emergencies.
  • To develop graduates with an ability to critically appraise current practice so that they can challenge and develop the specialty of Paediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM).
