General & Adolescent Paediatrics Unit
The General and Adolescent Paediatrics Unit is the home of general and community paediatrics and adolescent medicine within the wider UCL community.
Its aim is to bring a robust generalist perspective to research, teaching and training in child and adolescent health to ensure that the Institute of Child Health is a clear voice for UK paediatrics.
The Unit includes a diverse range of research, teaching and training responsibilities across UCL Partners and other UCL affiliated hospital and community paediatric sites. It forms the core of one of 8 Themes within ICH, including nursing, palliative care and pharmacy.
The Unit has 3 key roles:
- Research - Improving the health of children and adolescents through high quality research in general and community paediatrics and adolescent health.
- Teaching - Delivering high quality undergraduate paediatric training for the UCL Medical School.
- Training - Training high quality clinical academics in child and adolescent health, and supporting post-graduate training in general paediatrics and adolescent health throughout clinical sites affiliated with UCL Partners.
The Unit was formed when the Institute of Child Health was given responsibility for all paediatric academic activities within UCL. The largest part of the Unit is formed from the old UCL Medical School Department of Paediatrics and Child Health, with the more recent addition of Adolescent Health and Paediatric Pharmacology.
