Dr Camilla Kingdon, President

College Officer

Camilla assumed presidency at the Annual General Meeting on 10 May 2021.

She was RCPCH Vice President for Education and Professional Development from July 2018 to May 2021.

She graduated from the University of Cape Town, South Africa, and trained in paediatrics in London. She has been a consultant neonatologist since 2000. She works at the Evelina London Children's Hospital and has sub-specialty interests in neonatal nutrition, donor milk banking and neurodevelopmental follow up of high risk neonates.

She has a longstanding involvement in medical education at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. She was Head of the London School of Paediatrics and Child Health for 5 years and this gave her unique opportunities to see first hand the highs and lows of working in Paediatrics and all its subspecialties, in a wide range of different clinical settings.

Camilla has a particular interest and expertise in medical careers support. She completed a Masters in Medical Careers Management at the University of Brighton in 2013 and currently co-leads the RCPCH Careers Advisors network. She is especially interested in enhancing working lives of Paediatricians, team morale and ideas to combat burnout and disillusionment with Medicine.
