We will be carrying out essential maintenance on our website from 18:00 until 22:30 Tuesday 25 June 2019. As a result you will not be able to book courses, exams or events, or make online payments. Apologies for the inconvenience.
We are accredited by the Medical Council of Ireland and are proud to meet the strict standards required to deliver postgraduate specialist training in Paediatrics.
Established in 1982, we are one of six postgraduate specialist training bodies based in the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland.
We have over 340 members, who are experienced Consultant Paediatricians and leading experts in their field.
Paediatricians diagnose and treat specific health issues, diseases and disorders related to the various stages of growth and development. They work very closely with the patient and their family.
Paediatricians working in general hospitals in Ireland mainly practice General Paediatrics, dealing with the prevention, diagnosis and management of a wide range of diseases.
Paediatricians in tertiary children’s hospitals (e.g. Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin) tend to have a specific subspecialty interest, such as Paediatric Immunology or Paediatric Metabolic Medicine.
Neonatology, a subspecialty of Paediatrics, deals with the medical care of newborn infants, especially the ill or premature newborn infant. It is usually practiced in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs).
