Continuing professional development

If you are a career-grade paediatrician - whether a consultant or SAS doctor - or a child health professional we can help you develop your knowledge and skills.
For those who are completing their paediatric training, or who are working in a career-grade role, it can be difficult to know what happens next. Our guide highlights career options and support for you.
Assess and plan your educational needs with the RCPCH CPD scheme - you'll get access to our CPD Diary website and app, plus guidance from our friendly team.
We want to make sure that educational opportunities for child health professionals are high quality and relevant. We can assess your activity, whether it's face-to-face or online for endorsement or CPD approval.
