The Department of Paediatrics and Child Health provides undergraduate, post-graduate and Fellowship level training in the field of paediatrics and child health.  We also have strong track record in funded research and programs and policy.  The department is currently running a Fellowship in Emergency and Critical Care. Additionally we are running two fellowship programs in partnership with other units.  These are   Fellowship in Infectious diseases (jointly with the Unit of Infectious diseases) and Fellowship in Paediatric Nephrology (Jointly with East African Kidney Institute).   We are actively developing additional sub-speciality level courses including Neonatology, Paediatric Endocrinology and a Research Fellowship in Epidemiology.   The department has strong linkages with the KEMRI- Wellcome Trust, The University of Washington, Seattle, and the Kenya Paediatric Association.
