The mission of the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health (UCL GOS ICH) is to improve the health and well-being of children, and the adults they will become, through world-class research, education, and public engagement. The UCL GOS ICH, together with its clinical partner Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children (GOSH), forms the largest concentration of children’s health research outside of North America. GOS ICH’s activities include active engagement with children and families, to ensure that our work is relevant and appropriate to their needs. GOS ICH generates the funding for our research by setting out our proposals in high quality applications to public, charitable and industrial funding bodies and disseminates the results of our research by publication in the medical and scientific literature, to clinicians, policy makers and the wider public. The Institute offers world-class education and training across a wide range of teaching and life learning programmes which address the needs of students and professional groups who are interested in and undertaking work relevant to child health.
At GOS ICH we aim to always have a balanced interview panel that is representative of gender and ethnic diversity.
