Training in paediatric endocrinology and diabetes is delivered at Royal Hospital for Children, Glasgow to a level that is recognised by the BSPED (British Society for Paediatric Endocrinology & Diabetes) as sufficient for training in tertiary level training in this speciality.
The hospital is the largest tertiary paediatric centre in Scotland, offering all aspects of paediatric care. There is a large and active clinical workload representing all the sub-specialities of Paediatrics. The Consultant team has a strong research ethos. We aim to provide a varied and challenging training program to suit trainees who wish to pursue a career in paediatric endocrinology and diabetes.
During your fellowship programme you will be allocated to various clinical duties, depending on your experience and appropriate medical registration.
You will be encouraged to undertake a research/audit project during your fellowship.
Participation and presenting in unit meetings, ward rounds, journal club and departmental research meetings will be expected. There will also be opportunities to attend and present at regional meetings such as SPEG, national meetings such as BSPED and international meetings such as ESPE
Upon satisfactory completion of your fellowship you will be awarded a certificate.
