training program to support the development of the next generation of leaders in experimental medicine


At the core of all our activities is our training programme to support the development of the next generation of leaders in experimental medicine, paediatric rheumatology, and musculoskeletal disorders.

Academic Toolkit for Paediatricians 

The EATC4Children has worked closely with the Academic Paediatric Association of Great Britain and Ireland (APA) and the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) to develop an online toolkit to help paediatric trainees interested in an academic career pathway.

EATC4Children led training

The EATC4Children’s successful funding pipeline supports posts that we fully integrate into the EATC4Children, to develop a multi-disciplinary clinical research environment linking the bedside and bench. 

We continue to support a wide range of clinical trainees from medical students through to our Paediatric Rheumatology GRID Trainees and NIHR Academic Clinical Lecturer/Fellows as well as our translational scientists with undergraduate, postgraduate, and postdoctoral students. We have been very active in training of medical students undertaking research and scholarship projects associated with the EATC4Children. Two of our postdoctoral researchers have gone on to take up Tenure-Track Fellow positions at the University of Liverpool, demonstrating the EATC4Children’s strength in training the next generation of experimental medicine translational academics.
