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.
Assess your educational needs and identify appropriate, continual learning activities with our CPD scheme. This includes access to our online CPD Diary (now on RCPCH ePortfolio) and support from our friendly team.
We want to ensure that educational opportunities for child health professionals are high quality and relevant. We can assess your activity - face-to-face or online - for endorsement or CPD approval.

A great mentor not only has appropriate skills, but a willingness to listen and support. This regular (or intermittent) contact can make a significant different to a developing paediatrician, whether they have started training, or are about to become a consultant.
