Who are we and what do we do?

PEdSIG is all about promoting paediatric education (undergraduate and postgraduate) and supporting those involved in paediatric education through social media, meetings, written resources and by building a network of paediatricians who want to inspire through great teaching and education.

The PEdSIG Committee is a friendly and enthusiastic group of paediatric educators who help to deliver the PEdSIG vision. We are looking for two new committee members - a Foundation Officer and an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Officer. The Committee usually meets approximately 4 times per year: 2 meetings per year by Zoom or other online platform, a face-to-face business meeting and awayday, and one AGM meeting (usually held during the RCPCH Annual Conference). Key objectives are to deliver the PEdSIG session at the RCPCH and the PEdSIG Winter meeting. Committee members assist in organisation of these meetings, including scoring of abstracts.
