Brighton and Sussex Medical School

We are delighted to offer this MSc that is designed for medical students with an interest in Paediatrics & Child Health who are aiming to develop a more detailed and insightful understanding of childhood illnesses – acute, long-term and development-related – as well as a greater understanding of core research methodologies, critical evaluation, and evidence-based approaches to the study of childhood disease.

The course has been designed as a set of multidisciplinary modules and it is intended that students will share their experiences during the process of learning, thereby enhancing multidisciplinary working and in doing so develop the skills for successful inter-professional practice. The uniqueness of this course is its emphasis not only on the clinical aspects of paediatric care but also the provision of care, both now and in the future, and this is imbued within the clinical modules. The research dissertation provides an excellent opportunity to integrate study-based learning with a work-based research project improving students’ competencies and skills to enhance their long-term career in paediatrics.

We hope the course will help create the next generation of academically orientated paediatricians and general practitioners who will further improve the quality of children’s lives within the UK and abroad.
