Training with the APFP at UCT is only available to fellows where no local equivalent course exists. We offer a combination of medical (MMed/MPhil/PGDip) and rehabilitative (PGDip) specialty and sub-specialty options, as well as a few non-degree fellowships tailored to support multi-disciplinary team development.

Can’t see what you’re looking for? The APFP can arrange fellowship training with all divisions in the Department of Paediatrics and Child Health and in other Departments in the Health Sciences Faculty (where appropriate). We welcome applications from potential fellows that meet the eligibility criteria, and whose required programme of study is part of a broader strategic plan to build multi-disciplinary child healthcare teams.

Children’s nursing

As experts in paediatric healthcare, we understand the importance of building multi-disciplinary teams and the essential role nurses play within this. If you are a nurse working with children in Africa, or know someone that is, be sure to check out the courses on offer through our sister organisation, The Harry Crossley Children’s Nursing Development Unit.
