Paediatrics is a rewarding but challenging specialty. Our fill rates are up, but encouraging people to choose paediatrics isn't enough. We're committed to supporting you at every stage, from training and beyond. Find out more about the work we're doing around workforce, rota gaps and wellbeing, and hear from other paediatricians about what helps them.
Written by current trainees, this guide covers the essential elements on what to expect from your training post, and examples of good practice that showcase how different centres across the UK look after their trainees.
Staff Grade, Associate Specialist and Specialty (SAS) doctors play important roles in general paediatrics and community child health. We support on training and education, plus representation through the SAS Committee.
As a consultant or other career-grade doctor, you may have a varied career path in paediatrics - such as a 'portfolio career' or less than full time working, volunteering overseas or taking a career break. We look at the varied options.
Introducing Thrive Paediatrics - a framework for wellbeing, agency and sustainable staffing
