Divisional faculty have been honoured with educational awards on 18 occasions over the past five years. 

The division has developed a strong focus in patient-based clinical research through the development of the Paediatric Outcomes Research Team (PORT) in 1992. The mandate of the PORT program is to undertake research in common paediatric problems using epidemiologic methods. In addition, members of the division have developed foci in health services delivery and childhood injury. Two faculty members have developed expertise in educational research. Faculty-cross appointments include the University of Toronto graduate school of Public Health Science and HPME, Institute of Medical Sciences, and the Ontario Institute of Studies in Education.

In the past five years, members of the division have published 114 peer reviewed papers, participated in the generation of over $8 million in grant funding, and trained eight fellows in epidemologic research methodology and education research. Divisional faculty have been core members of the Critical Appraisal Course taught to all Paediatric Residents at SickKids. Other scholarly activity includes publication of 45 book chapters and 377 invited presentations.
