The Chapter of Community Child Health is committed to:
Members of the Chapter of Community Child Health share a view that a social (interactional, multifactorial, environmental) model of health and prevention is most relevant to contemporary child health issues. It is this complementary view to traditional paediatric medical care, which is important and must be sustained in the Paediatrics & Child Health Division.
The Chapter welcomes all doctors, from Australia and New Zealand, with expertise or engagement in Child Protection, Child Development and Child Population Health. It is vital to provide physicians practising in these areas with a sense of collegiality and peer support.
The Chapter is responsive to members' needs by making support and continuing education of Chapter members more central to the function of the Chapter, through its three Special Interest Groups. Advanced Trainees in Community Child Health and those undertaking the dual General Paediatrics/Community Child Health Training program and Overseas Trained Paediatricians undertaking assessment via RACP are granted automatic Membership of the Chapter.
For those medical practitioners who are not Fellows/Trainees of the College, or Overseas Trained Paediatricians undertaking RACP assessment, please complete the Application form below and send it with a full curriculum vitae to the Paediatrics & Child Health Divisional office.
