Education and careers

We are by your side from pre-med to retirement and wherever your career as a paediatrician takes you. Learn more about how we can help your development to improve child health.


We are a specialty that is rewarding, varied and where you can make a huge impact.

We're sharing your stories as paediatricians about why you chose paediatrics, and what keeps you there – as well as highlighting all the work the College is doing to keep supporting you throughout your training and career.

We invite you to watch our new video featuring College members from around the UK and explore our resources.

COVID-19 update

The pandemic has caused disruption to medical education, training and assessment in the UK. We're committed to supporting paediatric trainees and those who deliver paediatric training in the UK. 

While we've cancelled face-to-face courses and events until January 2021, we've busy developing online events and continue to have a range of free eLearning. We are starting to safely deliver our theory and clinical exams, and we have guidance on trainee progression this year.

We also have a guidance on paediatric services, staffing/rotas and collecting data on cases, as well as summaries of the current evidence - you can find it all on our COVID-19 hub.

It’s conference, but not as we know it... This year’s conference will be hosted online with a virtual poster gallery and over 20 free sessions led by a range of specialty groups - it all kicks off from 25 September.

We hope to see you online!
