Welcome from the Head of Department
Welcome to the Department of Paediatrics.
We are a diverse mix of people, focused on delivering the best in teaching and research. We are home to internationally-renowned teams of scientists and researchers, addressing diverse aspects of heath and disease affecting children across the world. The Department's outstanding reputation for teaching and research is thanks to the talent, hard work and dedication of all our staff. Whatever your role will be with us, we are delighted that you have chosen to be a part of our team.
Paediatrics prides itself on being a family-friendly department, recognising the demands of work/life balance and we are constantly improving our working practices to ensure that all staff and students are well supported at all levels of their work and study. Throughout the year, we run a number of different events within the Department that range from science to social occasions and bring together the entire Department.
The Department has an Induction Programme that is designed to help you orientate within the Department and the University and what we as a community can offer you personally. My hope is that you will settle quickly into the Department and enjoy being part of what is a vibrant, friendly and varied community.
With best wishes,
Head of the Department
Hoffmann and Action Medical Research Professor of Developmental Medicine
