The International Postgraduate Paediatric Certificate (IPPC) team from the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network aims to improve child health globally by empowering healthcare professionals treating children and young people through a sustainable model of education demonstrating best practice especially in developing countries.
The reach of this program meets demand throughout Australia, extending to 25 countries, especially developing countries with high rates of infant and child mortality. Their relatively few doctors and nurses have limited access to latest in paediatric teaching and constrained capacity to afford international education.
Conducted within each country, IPPC is a, self-funded, not-for-profit course, strengthening capacity to save children’s lives. Scaled course fees in each country ensures that it is affordable by doctors and nurses; those in developing countries are cross subsidised by those in developed countries.
IPPC comprises annually updated webcasts, self-study, tutorials from local paediatric experts and a comprehensive assessment. Appreciative alumni value free lifelong access.
