Enhance your career and clinical expertise with a Professional Diploma in Paediatrics from a world leading postgraduate training body

A wealth of evidence now shows that the healthy foetus, newborn and child enjoy better health as an adult. The care of infants, children and young people often form a large part of a doctor’s caseload, yet newly qualified doctors are often ill-equipped to provide comprehensive child-centred medical care and doctors considering entering speciality training in paediatrics soon realise that children are not simply small adults. Assessing an ill child is an art.

Kate O’Hara

I would highly recommend the iheed and RCPI diploma courses. I was so impressed by the quality of teaching, the ease of use of the online platform and the friendly and approachable tutors on the Paediatrics diploma that I also signed up for the diploma in Women's Health. Thanks iheed for making postgraduate diplomas in medicine so accessible and enjoyable.

Zoya Ahmed

This course forms an excellent base for paediatric clinical practice. What's best is how easily explained yet comprehensive it is. I highly recommend it for all the physicians in general practice as well those who are opting for paediatric speciality in the future. I truly enjoyed the course. It's an honour to be an alumnus of RCPI.
