The Department of Pediatrics at Queen's includes departmental academic general pediatricians, community consultant pediatricians, and academic subspecialists. Particular departmental strengths include general pediatrics, behavioural and developmental pediatrics, neonatology and genetics. Our philosophy is geared towards providing excellent pediatric training for those planning an eventual career in consultant general pediatrics, academic general pediatrics, or subspecialty pediatrics.
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. Each resident is assured exposure to a wide diversity and optimal number of patients by virtue of the program's size.
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. Excellent hands-on broad ranging clinical opportunities at Queen's are enhanced by the specific subspecialty selectives at CHEO, in Ottawa.
Our program is committed to providing each trainee with pediatric experiences individualized to his/her personal career goals. By the end of their training, residents have had the opportunity to develop the confidence and skills needed to practice general pediatrics expertly in any sized community.
Our training sites are located at Kingston General Hospital (KGH), Hotel Dieu Hospital in Kingston (HDH), Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) and Moose Factory General Hospital for native children, located in James Bay Region, Northern Ontario.
