Distance Learning Paediatric Neurodisability
This is a collaborative partnership between Sheffield Childrens Hospital Foundation Trust and Sheffield Hallam University and is recognised by the Paediatric Neurodisability CSAC of the Royal College of Paediatric and Child Health.
This is a three-year part time distance learning course. In years one and two you will take twelve subject units of study, delivered in four clinical modules, covering the many aspects of paediatric neurodisability. This complements the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) Paediatric Neurodisability Level 3 Training Programme.
These modules are delivered by the course team based at the Ryegate centre, Sheffield Childrens Hospital NHS Trust.
All of the core modules are relevant to practice and include text prepared by experts, recommended reading, exercises based on the text and residentials related to each module.
You will complete an in depth audit alongside the course modules with anticipation of a completed audit cycle. This may form the basis for a dissertation to be completed in year three. You may however choose another relevant dissertation topic.
We also expect you to complete a statistics and research module in year three. We can provide appropriate support for this. You will enrol with Sheffield Hallam University to undertake the final year.
