Welcome to the Diploma in Child Health / International Postgraduate Paediatric Certificate website.
2017 is the 26th year of this one year, part-time course which is from paediatric experts at the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network and co-awarded by the Sydney Medical School of the University of Sydney.
Our Participants, Tutors and Alumni report that it gives great impetus to their paediatric knowledge and skills, enhancing confidence in caring for children, young people and their families. You will see some of their photographs and comments in our 8 page DCH / IPPC Quarterly under “About Us” on this website.
Our vision is “Healthier Children Globally”. We aim to provide this course to all health professionals who seek it, wherever they are working, so that the benefits of their learning result in improved health outcomes for children all over the world. Please feel free to tell your colleagues about this opportunity.
We are always pleased to receive new enrolments at any time throughout the year and will be allocated an exam stream appropriate to your location and time of enrolment. Following enrolment you have free access for 30 days.
For historical and important reasons the course title varies in different locations and for different cohorts:
• Diploma in Child Health for Australian and New Zealand Participants (for Doctors)
• Diploma in Child Health (Sydney) for Hong Kong Participants
• International Postgraduate Paediatric Certificate for doctors in other countries
