The MTropPaed was the first Masters Degree course in Tropical Paediatrics offered in Europe. The programme addresses both curative and preventive strategies relating to common disorders of children from both a clinical and community perspective. Emphasis is given to the development of research skills applicable to a wide range of child health-related problems in clinical and epidemiological settings.
Participants complete a short project, which can include a 2month period of applied research in an overseas location. An optional period of study in Liverpool may be chosen as an alternative to an overseas project.
