Pediatric Post-Graduate Medical Education (PGME) Program
Section Description

The Section of Postgraduate Medical Education oversees the training program of physicians pursuing a career in pediatrics.  The Pediatric Residency Program is designed to fulfill the Specialty Training Requirements in Pediatrics from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC), as well as the requirements of the American Board of Pediatrics.  The residency is designed such that residents who successfully complete their initial three years of training will have completed all mandatory core rotations and subspecialty selective rotations as required by the RCPSC.  Residents may choose to enter PGY4 for subspecialty training without the need to adjust subspecialty training to meet RCPSC requirements for general paediatrics.  Approximately 35 residents are in various stages of training in general pediatrics at any given time.  In addition, approximately 15-20 trainees are in pediatric subspecialty residency/fellowships.
