Programme Outline

This programme is for doctors practising or intending to practise in developing countries. It provides a critical understanding of the evidence for the control and management of diseases in childhood, with particular reference to endemic diseases in tropical countries.

Students will develop their ability to appraise the evidence that underlies current practice, to undertake research, and to lead improvements in the quality of health services delivered to children in both hospital and community settings.

The curriculum reflects current national and international priorities and policies in global child health. After the taught component, which does not include a formal hospital attachment or bedside teaching, participants complete a dissertation – including a period of applied research either overseas or in Liverpool.

This course aims to:

  • Provide doctors with previous experience in paediatrics and child health with research skills relevant to child health-related problems in low income countries
  • Develop students’ knowledge and comprehension of the preventive and curative management strategies that promote child health and well-being in tropical countries
  • Enable students to comprehend and conduct child health-related research
  • Produce graduates who are experienced, committed, informed, proactive and effective professionals, capable of taking substantial and leading professional roles
  • Facilitate high quality learning that is informed by critical analysis of current research


The MSc Tropical Paediatrics provides a wide range of skills and training for paediatricians planning academic and clinical careers in the tropics. This MSc is often a starting point for career progression, and together with a successful dissertation/research project, it can strengthen your CV when applying for promotion in clinical settings. This MSc is a great springboard into clinical academic routes, with previous students being successful in various PhD Fellowships. Also, many students have had their research projects published in peer reviewed journals, enhancing their standing in the academic research environment.
