Trainees must become proficient in the management of children with many conditions, including congenital cardiac disease, haematological disorders, immunodeficiencies, malignancies, endocrinopathies, respiratory diseases and neurological disease. They must also develop the knowledge and skills to provide high quality care to children with intellectual and physical disabilities.
