We’re extending you a warm invitation to join us at the 2025 UCT Paediatric Refresher Course, taking place from Tuesday 4th February to Friday 7th February. Our conference, themed “Hearts, Minds and Where we come from”, will feature insightful contributions from Medical Genetics, Cardiology and Neurodevelopment.

Workshops will be on cardiac point of care ultrasound for the NICU, PICU and Emergency Department and in Neurodevelopment, helping children, and their families, with challenging behaviour.

As the landscapes of care and the profile of children’s health have evolved in these disciplines, our experts will include what you need to know about genetic testing and treatments, autism diagnosis and family care, medication for developmental conditions, a variety of exciting and interactive sessions on common paediatric heart disease and a view of some revolutionary developments available for your cardiac patients.

Workshops will be held at Red Cross Children’s Hospital and the main conference will be held in person at the Vineyard Hotel in Newlands from Wednesday where friends old and new can meet up, learn and share experiences.

We look forward to providing you with an exceptional programme in beautiful Cape Town.

Karen Fieggen, Mark Richards, George Comitis and Barend Fourie.
