Program Information
Faculty: School of Medicine
Degree: Not Applicable
Field of Study: Pediatrics
Description Queen's Pediatric Residency Program is ideally suited to those intending to practice general consultant pediatrics. Alternatively, for those eventually intending to sub-specialize in pediatrics, Queen's provides a thorough, comprehensive three year core curriculum, and an excellent foundation in general pediatrics. The program is able to provide each of its residents with training suited to his or her individual needs and interests, while achieving the aims and objectives for pediatric training established by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. The relatively small size of the pediatric program allows the development of close working, supportive relationships among the trainees in the program and with the members of the department. The department's commitment towards the residency program is reflected not only in the provision of training environments with wide ranging clinical opportunities, but also in the comprehensive seminar program. Particular departmental strengths include general paediatrics, behavioural and developmental paediatrics, neonatology and genetics. Excellent hands-on broad ranging clinical opportunities at Queen's are enhanced by the specific subspecialty selectives at CHEO, in Ottawa.
