RCPCH Progress curriculum

With a focus on learning outcomes - not tickboxes - our curriculum sets the standard for the skills, knowledge and behaviours that paediatricians need as they progress through training.

The curriculum has 11 domains, with learning outcomes for each training level. Syllabi provide further requirements and help you demonstrate achievement of the learning outcomes.

We explain how Progress works - and how to use it as you throughout your training. Videos introduce you to the curriculum, and demonstrate a supervisor-trainee scenario.

For those in level 3 training, you will need the syllabus for your sub-specialty (also called 'grid' training) or general paediatrics. We manage 17 paediatric sub-specialties.

Domain of the month - Communication

"It's a vital part of my work, important in the assessment of children and in being able to give information to families in a way that's easy to understand for them." Dr Janice Bothwell, community paediatrician, explains the importance of good communication and gives some helpful hints.

Help us develop our domain resources

We are now creating resources for the other domains:

  • Communication
  • Procedures
  • Patient management
  • Safeguarding

Can you write a case study or create a short a film to explain how you've used a domain in your work? It's a great way to highlight your achievements and support your colleagues!
