The Department of Paediatrics was established in 1972, and is a member of the University of Oxford Medical Sciences Division. The University Department maintains strong links with the NHS Department of Paediatrics, and has a world renowned reputation for excellence in both our research and our teaching; we currently host around 120 staff and post-graduate research students, as well as teaching Paediatric Medicine to undergraduate students from the University of Oxford Medical School.
