The 4-year Master of Paediatrics programme consists of three stages:
- Stage l (Year 1) includes training in basic clinical paediatrics, basic sciences and emergency paediatrics. Ample opportunities to develop procedural skills are available especially when on-call.
- Stage ll (Year 2 & 3) involves structured rotation in the various disciplines to develop well-rounded knowledge in paediatrics and child health. Trainees usually embark on their research project at this stage.
- Stage lll (Year 4) involves advanced training in paediatrics including the subspeciality of choice. Trainees are allowed short attachments in subspeciality units in other hospitals.
Submission of a thesis/research project report is required at this stage before being allowed to graduate.
