This programme aims to provide doctors practising or intending to practise in developing countries with a critical understanding of the evidence for the control and management of diseases in childhood with particular reference to endemic diseases in tropical countries. Students will develop their ability to appraise the evidence that underlies current practice, undertake research and lead improvements in the quality of health services delivered to children in both hospital and community settings. The curriculum reflects current national and international priorities and policies in global child health. Following the taught component, which does not include a formal hospital attachment or bed side teaching, participants complete a dissertation including a period of applied research either overseas or in Liverpool.

The MSc Tropical Paediatrics provides a wide range of skills and training for paediatricians planning academic and clinical careers in the tropics. This MSc is often a starting point for career progression, and together with a successful dissertation/research project, it can strengthen your CV when applying for promotion in clinical settings. This MSc is a great springboard into clinical academic routes, with previous students being successful in various PhD Fellowships. Also, many students have had their research projects published in peer reviewed journals, enhancing their standing in the academic research environment.

TESTIMONIALS

“I had one of the best years of my life doing the MSc. I met some amazing and passionate colleagues, and some inspirational and experienced teachers. Some of the LSTM staff have continued on to be a mentor to me in my research over half a decade later so these connections cannot be underestimated. Neither can the friendships of my colleagues. The best thing about the MSc was the overseas research project. I really cannot stress how actually doing the whole process from concept, to ethics, to designing consent forms and executing and analysing things was just brilliant. I am forever grateful for the opportunity.” (Dr Lalith Wijedoru, Alumni Survey, 2015)
