Bespoke Education and Training
The GOSH Learning Academy
Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children (GOSH) in central London is an international centre of excellence and is recognised as a world-class specialist hospital for children. Founded in 1852, and still remaining on its original site, the hospital has a unique heritage from caring exclusively for children for over 160 years. With extensive specialist experience, GOSH has become a world leader in paediatric care, research and training.
What does GOSH have to offer?
GOSH currently delivers the widest range of specialist care of any children’s hospital in the UK. The hospital has over 60 paediatric specialties, which uniquely enables it to diagnose and pioneer treatments for children and young people with highly complex, rare or multiple conditions. It has 19 highly specialised national services for rare diseases, the highest of any UK hospital and is the only exclusively specialist NHS Foundation Trust children’s hospital in the UK.
GOSH is one of the top four children’s research hospitals in the world. As one of the UK’s leading academic and research powerhouses, University College London (UCL) joined forces with GOSH in 1946 to form the UCL Great Ormond Street (GOS) Institute of Child Health and they now form the largest concentration of children’s health researchers in Europe and the largest medical teaching centre in the UK. GOSH is the only specialist Biomedical Research Centre for paediatrics in the UK, the largest centre in the UK for children with heart or brain problems, and the largest centre in Europe for children with cancer.
Our programmes are designed to put patient safety and quality of care at the heart of our teaching. We provide a supportive culture of learning and professional development where participants are given the opportunity to reflect and demonstrate the expectations of good clinical practice. Our organisation has a wealth of specialist knowledge to offer across the globe. Our international education collaborations and fellowships provide simulation-based training, clinical skills and speciality training, leadership development, plus academic courses.
Great Ormond Street Hospital's location at the heart of London means that the hospital is uniquely placed to unite world-leading experts under one roof, facilitating unparalleled collaborations that will help to change the lives of seriously ill children not just at GOSH but across the world.
