Paediatrics offers a career with plenty of practical experience across a wide range of clinical skills.

Paediatricians build close working relationships with other clinical disciplines, allied professionals and patients' families, all requiring excellent teamworking and communication.

Working with babies through to teenagers, doctors find that not only are patients fun to work with, but they also have great capacity to recover quickly from illness.

Dealing with similar clinical issues across a developing age group brings variety, challenge and opportunity for continuous learning.
