Community and partners

Children’s Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba (CHRIM)

Our partnership with the Children’s Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba (CHRIM) allows our residents, fellows and physicians to be a part of collaborative projects—working in the areas of basic science, clinical trials and knowledge translation.

  • Each area is crucial to our vision of creating a learning hospital, to integrate our research in the care of our patients—transforming research from the bench to be used directly at the bedside.
  • Pediatrics is a uniquely rewarding specialty. We strive to provide excellent training and care for patients and their families, from infancy to adolescence.
  • Our research runs in partnership with CHRIM, working together to make kids better and keep them from getting sick.
  • With departmental training for undergraduate, postgraduate, nurse practitioner and international medical graduate students available, we're committed to training medical professionals across the spectrum of patient care.
  • Affiliated sections include anesthesia, ophthalmology, orthopedics, otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat), radiology, surgery and urology.
