About this course

The Postgraduate Diploma in Child Health (DCH) comprises two papers, CHHE 701 and CHHE 702. It is recommended that students enrol for CHHE 701 immediately before or after completing CHHE 702.

CHHE 701 is also available, on its own, to a wider range of postgraduate students from medical training programmes (e.g. the General Practice Education Programme (GPEP), or the Master of Health Sciences (MHealSc) degree), as well as non-medical postgraduate students from health professions such as nursing, physiotherapy and occupational therapy.

CHHE 702 can also be taken as a stand-alone paper for a Certificate of Proficiency (COP), an attractive option for medical staff going into fields such as emergency medicine and anaesthesia.

The Postgraduate Diploma in Child Health (DCH) is also available through Distance Learning.

For information on DCH examinations, see the Distance Learning Examination Timetable
