Welcome to Paediatrics

Prof. Alf Nicholson, Head of Paediatrics and all of the Faculty of Paediatrics deliver the Paediatric rotation to all students that undertake Senior Cycle 1. The RCSI Department of Paediatrics is committed to pursuing excellent undergraduate education in Paediatrics for RCSI students in all the clinical sites.

We encourage all students to take advantage of all learning opportunities during the rotation. We hope to inspire students to consider a career in Paediatrics. We aim to train students eyes, hands and mind in the nuances and niceties of paediatrics.

We are also devoted to excellence in postgraduate training and research and are very pleased that all our tutors are actively participating in research with a view to obtaining an MD or PhD thesis.

Our expert team of academic and administrative staff, most of whom are pictured below, are always at hand to assist students and answer any questions.
