About us

Founded in 1996 and now with over 18,000 members across the world, we play a major role in postgraduate medical education, professional standards, research and policy.

Our mission is to transform child health through knowledge, innovation and expertise. Our vision is a healthier future for children and young people across the world. 

If you have an educational programme, mentoring scheme, clinical guideline or other publication relevant to paediatrics and child health, you may wish to seek RCPCH endorsement.
We want to improve children’s health outcomes through more high quality and trusted research. Let's work together to share our expertise and promote the evidence.
We support organisations and teams to resolve concerns about paediatric service provision, safety, training, compliance with standards, and proposals for paediatric reconfiguration or service design.

College announcements

Each month we invite members to nominate themselves for a range of posts on RCPCH committees. Current opportunities include Careers Advisor, Chair of Trainees Committee and posts on our Examinations Executive Committee.
