For complete and up-to-date information about this course, please visit the relevant University of Oxford course page via www.graduate.ox.ac.uk/ucas The MSc in Paediatric Infectious Diseases can be taken part-time over one year as an extension to the Postgraduate Diploma in Paediatric Infectious Diseases. It is for those who wish to broaden their knowledge about paediatric infection and develop research skills in the subspecialty. Please be aware: In order to apply for the MSc, you must have successfully and recently completed the PGDip in Paediatric Infectious Diseases. The MSc is intended to assess your capacity to formulate research questions, select, design and manage a research project. You will complete a research project of between eight and fourteen weeks and write a dissertation of not more than 15,000 words based upon this. The research can be carried out in Oxford or locally, making the programme suitable for overseas as well as UK residents. You will receive support and guidance from your dedicated Oxford supervisor during the preparation of your dissertation. If you are completing your research project outside of Oxford you will also be required to find a local supervisor. While there is no formal teaching programme for the MSc year, you may attend any of the regular series of University lectures and seminars in relevant disciplines, particularly those run by the Department of Paediatrics. PGDip The Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip) in Paediatric Infectious Diseases is a part-time course designed to provide a variety of different teaching methods, both face-to-face and online, directing students through the syllabus required in the EU for clinical training in the subspecialty. The course is appropriate for those outside the EU. Worldwide, two-thirds of the deaths of children under five years of age are caused by infectious diseases, and the prevention and treatment of infections in children is the number one priority for global health. Thus, the department believes that professionally-oriented education in paediatric infectious diseases is essential in the training of clinicians and clinical academics who will provide the future leadership in this key area for global health. The Postgraduate Diploma is a two-year, part-time course taught via a blend of online and residential components, providing you with an in-depth understanding of both the theoretical and practical aspects of paediatric infection. It also places the practice of paediatric infectious diseases in the broader context of applied sciences, such as pathogenesis, population biology and epidemiology. The course will appeal to doctors who have experience in paediatrics, including trainees in paediatrics who have a specialist qualification equivalent to the Membership Examination of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (MRCPCH), specialist trainees in paediatric infectious diseases or relevant medical subspecialties, and clinical research fellows.
