The Department of Paediatrics is a small and friendly unit that is embedded within Addenbrooke’s hospital. Research undertaken in our Department includes both clinical trials as well as translational basic research projects.
Paediatrics is primarily a post-graduate discipline. However the department is very involved in teaching undergraduate medical students who all experience a six-week clinical course in childhood health and are examined in Paediatrics in finals. We are keen to encourage doctors and researchers to go on to specialise in Paediatrics and there are opportunities for undergraduates, clinicians and post-graduate researchers to work with us.
You can find out more about courses and the experience of studying at the University of Cambridge by the Study at Cambridge site, where the undergraduate and graduate prospectuses are.
The Clinical Academic Office provides extensive information for clinicians on developing their training.
