Welcome to the Department of Pediatrics

Welcome to the Department of Pediatrics at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario and at Kingston General Hospital and Hotel Dieu Hospital. We are proud of our clinical service and research and to train the next generation of clinicians, teachers and scholars.

We take a family-centred approach to providing age-appropriate inpatient and ambulatory care to children from birth to age 18 through the efforts of interdisciplinary health care teams. The Pediatric Inpatient unit and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit are both located at Kingston General Hospital. Ambulatory Care, including the Children's Outpatient Centre, the Child Development Centre, and Pediatric Day Surgery are all located at Hotel Dieu Hospital.

The department is actively involved in undergraduate and postgraduate medical education. We currently have 18 residents in our postgraduate program, which prepares trainees to be general pediatric consultants and also provides a core program for those planning careers in subspecialty pediatrics.

We thank you for your interest in our Department and its programs. We would be pleased to provide additional information upon request.
