40% of a General Practitioner's workload constitutes children, while hardly any of our GP's have any formal training in Paediatrics.
After the success of MRCPCH Final Examinations of the UK, RCPCH is launching DCH, UK for India, commencing at Kolkata! Preparatory course for DCH UK Examination gives you an opportunity to assist the aspirants of Paediatric training, GP's and any other doctor wanting to sharpen their skills in the subject of Child Health.
This course is also helpful for the MRCPCH Part 1 candiadates, Paediatricians in their post graduate training in India and MRCPCH aspirants in preparing for their own respective examinations as well as in going for DCH, UK post graduate diploma qualification, while doing so.
If you have missed the announcement on the Journal of Indian Academy of Pediatrics (IAP Journal) on its last inside page, here is your opportunity to take another look. Please spread this word to help improve the quantum of knowledge in safe Paediatric practice in India.
Please send it to any one you know may benefit from this information.

Please do not hesitate to contact me or any of the other organizers mentioned in the flyer, if you need any further clarification.
