Field of Study:Health Services/Allied Health/Health Sciences, General
Medicine (MD)
Description:The paediatric residency program is a fully accredited program focused on providing excellent training in all aspects of paediatrics so that trainees may pursue careers in either community consulting paediatrics or a paediatric subspecialty.

The program includes community paediatrics rotations in smaller communities in the region (i.e. not a tertiary care city like London). There is funding available for these rotations to be undertaken in Southwestern Ontario. However, residents have been allowed to do these rotations in other locations if the practice meets the criteria although in most of these cases additional funding is not available. As well, some of the rural locations are within commuting distance.
Length:4 Year(s)

Admission Requirements

Prerequisites:*

These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.

    Successful candidates will have demonstrated clinical competence, good communication skills, aptitude in team skills, and a keen interest in child health. Pediatric experience through electives is a definite asset though not a pre-requisite, and these need not necessarily have taken place in London. Committed, self-motivated, "hands-on" learners are valued. Outstanding academic or community achievement, research experience and productivity and other credentials/accomplishments relevant to pediatrics are an asset. Relevant degree or equivalent.

    * We make every attempt to provide accurate information on prerequisites, programs, and tuition. However, this information is subject to change without notice and we highly recommend that you contact the school to confirm important information before applying.
