Imperial College School of Medicine has developed an innovative spiral curriculum for students embarking on the six-year MBBS/BSc in Medicine. Life sciences, child health and development, and clinical paediatrics from conception to adulthood are threaded through the six years, with an increasing emphasis on the provision of longitudinal undergraduate experiences.
The postgraduate offering from the Centre is broad-ranging to provide inclusivity, diversity and accessibility to those studying, working and teaching in the field of Paediatrics and Child Health. Imperial College London has a long history of collaborative working and supporting professional development. The aim of the postgraduate education arm of the Centre is therefore to provide a central umbrella under which access to Paediatric education across the College and affiliated NHS clinical institutions can be brought together.
