Visiting Professors

Each year, our Visiting Professor Program promotes the presence of distinguished professors and representatives from the Diagnostic Imaging field from all over the world at SickKids and the University of Toronto.

The program allows staff from our own Department and around the Hospital to experience different and innovative teaching methods, while making a relevant contribution to intensifying and consolidating new and continuing cooperation projects and relationships with various hospitals and universities worldwide.
