Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to the Sydney Child Health Program (SCHP), an excellent quality education in paediatrics. This program has been rebranded in 2018 and stems from the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network (SCHN) and is endorsed by the University of Sydney. Although the program name has changed, the content remains the same with a focus on knowledge, skills and best practice over the past 26 years.

This program has a global reach in more than 25 countries and was awarded the International Education Association of Australia’s award for best practice in international education in 2017. Our team will continue to strive to provide excellent quality service to empower healthcare professionals treating children and young people globally with best practice in paediatrics and maintain our vision of “Healthier Children Globally”.

We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network as well as our committed paediatric specialist presenters.

Our co-conferring organisations in Australia include:
        • Princess Margaret Hospital, Perth
        • Women’s and Children’s Hospital, Adelaide
        • Children’s Health Queensland / Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital

Internationally we co-confer with the:
        • Maharashtra University of Health Sciences
        • The Apollo Hospital Group
        • The Indian Medical Association College of General Practitioners

The commitment and expertise of our international tutors provides local adaptation and gives great impetus to this program to support participants in most international countries.

We look forward to working with you.
