Divisional Profile

The division of paediatric neurosciences consists of the units of paediatric neurology, paediatric neurosurgery and child development. These specialities though diverse are complementary, and they highlight the benefits of a multidisciplinary approach to care of children with a wide spectrum of disability. The division operates at a secondary, tertiary and quaternary level. Combining the units under one division has allowed for comprehensive multidisciplinary approaches to clinical care and research.

Areas of clinical and research interest reflect the clinical need both locally and nationally. Collaborative research projects are underway with other departments within this university as well as other national and international research institutions.
