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.
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.
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.
Our service provides personal career guidance through a network of advisors. It's free of charge to RCPCH members and fellows at different career levels - including trainees, SAS doctors and consultant paediatricians.

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.
