Training in Paediatrics is designed to cover the broad knowledge base required by postgraduate trainees choosing to specialize in paediatrics, from their initial Foundation Year placements through to examination for Membership of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (MRCPCH examinations). The curriculum and new examination structures have been specifically addressed by the authors and editors of the text, creating an accessible, concise, and comprehensive text which should be a companion to any doctor undertaking paediatrics courses, including the Diploma in Child Health. Trainees and recent veterans of the MRCPCH examination have been involved throughout the authorship and review processes, enabling the text to be honed to trainee requirements.
Training in Paediatrics has been broken into the major disciplines that must be mastered by the paediatrician, ranging from neonatology to mental health. Each two-page spread displays a discreet topic in an authoritative, structured, and highly-illustrated format, allowing the reader to easily navigate the book. The structure allows the reader to break down revision and learning into accessible units. Each case-based discussion at the end of each chapter helps the trainee to contextualize information, test their knowledge against a realistic scenario, and monitor their own progress.

...ideal for physicians training in paediatrics...I wish I had this book during my training - I am sure that it would have boosted my early enthusiasm of paediatrics, and that I would have reached a comfortable level of broad knowledge and expertise much earlier in my career...even as a senior paediatrician and a long time teacher in paediatrics, I find a lot to learn and great inspiration from the book. Acta Paediatrica ...a pleasing balance of core knowledge essential to the college exams and hands-on practical advice that would help trainees in their early years of training...this book would also be useful to consultants and clinical supervisors to inform their teaching sessions and level of knowledge expected from a junior trainee. Archive of Disease in Childhood This is the book I wish I had had during training. Now it is the reference book I keep beside my bed. Florence Herbert, Institute of Clinical Science, Belfast
