We are recruiting members at all career stages and across the UK to act as commissioners on this two-year project, which will set out a compelling and credible vision for the future of paediatrics in the UK.
We offer two qualifications: Membership (MRCPCH) and the Diploma of Child Health (DCH). We support candidates to register, apply for and sit their exams - whether in the UK and Ireland, or in a growing number of countries internationally.
Membership of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (MRCPCH) is achieved by passing three theory exams and one clinical exam. It's an essential part of training and mapped to our curriculum.
Our Diploma of Child Health recognises competence in the care of children. With one theory exam and one clinical exam, it's especially for those working in specialties allied to paediatrics such as general practice.
The College has responded to the Migration Advisory Committee's call for evidence, recommending that all paediatric grades in the UK be added to the Shortage Occupation List, Appendix K on the Immigration Rules.
The PAFTA awards recognise the very best in paediatric training in the UK. Once again, we invite nominations from deaneries/Local Education and Training Boards (LETBs) for junior trainees, senior trainees and educational supervisors.
