Tue 26 Sep 2023

Academic toolkit

This 'how to guide' was jointly developed by the Academic Paediatrics Association (GB and Irelend), the UK Experimental Arthritis Treatment Centre for Children (EATC for Children) and the RCPCH.   

This is a perfect stepping-on point for anyone interested in paediatrics or already committed paediatric trainees to explore more about academic careers. There are tips on many areas such as improving your applications, academic checklists, writing a compelling PhD proposal and case studies outlining career journeys by your predecessors. Don't be surprised by the amazing variety of paths travelled - there is hope for us all.
