Researchers and Health-care Professionals

Welcome to SickKids Learning Institute

This section outlines some of our work supporting your educational endeavors as health-care professional or researcher.

Education is the critical link between research and its application in the care of a sick child. The Learning Institute supports the delivery of education through enhancement, integration and innovation.

It was at SickKids that some of the most well known advances in child care were developed. The first instant baby cereal, Pablum, was discovered at SickKids. The Hospital was the first to successfully separate conjoined twins. It has pioneered open heart surgery in children and its research team was the first to identify the gene that causes Cystic Fibrosis.

So, if you are a researcher or a healthcare professional, the Learning Institute welcomes you to share, learn and discover with us.
