What we do

Inpatient Service

There are two clinical inpatient services, general infectious disease and immunocompromised, that are staffed by separate teams of fellows and ID consultants. These teams can be contacted through the hospital locating at 416-813-7500.

Ambulatory Service

Our ambulatory service is structured around the following disease categories:

  • Paediatric HIV
  • Tuberculosis
  • Congenital/Perinatal infections
  • Bone/joint and soft tissue infections
  • International communicable diseases
  • Miscellaneous general ID
  • Central nervous system infections

To contact the ID clinic, please phone 416-813-5141

To make a referral:

  • All patients require a referral to visit our clinic.
  • If you are a health-care professional, log in to eCHN to submit your referral. From your eCHN account, you will be seamlessly connected to SickKids e-referral platform, EpicCare Link.
