Field of Study:Pediatrics
Description:Like all pediatric training programs in Canada, ours is of four years duration. The first three years cover core training in general pediatrics. The first year provides a breadth of exposure to general pediatrics. The second year facilitates career options by exposing residents to subspecialties in greater depth. The third year is designed to consolidate the education acquired in core rotations and to provide opportunities for more elective rotations to deepen knowledge and experience in selected areas. The final year is flexible, with residents able to pursue subspecialty training, or spend more time training as a community or hospital based general pediatrician.
