Members of the Division are actively involved in undergraduate and postgraduate education. Throughout the year, the Division hosts local, national and international elective students. Subspecialty residents are accepted after completion of their training in Pediatrics. Weekly Journal Club and Teaching Rounds are held on Tuesdays. Pediatric Neuroscience Rounds are held on alternate Thursday mornings.
The Division of Pediatric Neurology offers fellowship
opportunities and a residency training program in
pediatric neurology which is accredited by the Royal
College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
Our program is small and flexible, with objectives of
the training experience designed to meet the background
and career track of each candidate. Our primary goal is to
prepare our residents to function as pediatric neurology
consultants within an academic practice.
Because of the funding nature of our position,
applications can only be accepted from persons who have
completed at least the three core years of pediatric
training and preferably have, or anticipate, their Royal
College certification in Pediatrics. Exceptional
candidates from outside Canada may be considered.
