Paediatric Dermatology Program

The mandate of the Paediatric Dermatology Clinic is to provide consultations for paediatric skin conditions of concern to a physician or health-care professional where past treatment has proven unsuccessful or where additional investigation is needed in order to provide treatment and/or diagnosis.

Currently, clinical work consists of over 8000 visits a year with a minimum of two clinics running daily and a busy in-patient/emergency room consultation service.

Permanent staff members

  • Dr. Elena Pope
  • Dr. Irene Lara-Corrales
  • Dr. Miriam Weinstein

  • Dr. Alexandra Pennal

Minor part-time physicians (providing one to two clinics per week)

  • Dr. Nhung Ho

We provide care in general dermatology clinics and several specialized, single provider or multi-disciplinary clinics:  Morphea clinic, Epidermolysis bullosa clinic, Genodermatoses clinic, Cutaneous T-cell Lymphoma clinic, Cafe-au-lait screening clinic, Vitiligo clinic, Psoriasis clinic and Vascular tumor clinic (VAST).  In 2018, two additional clinics were created, a Hematology/Oncology-Dermatology clinic and an Atopic Dermatitis clinic and Teaching program was created to address a subset of patients who often have more severe disease and to educate patients and promote self-management. Similarly, we offer laser clinics primarily for vascular lesions.

The Dermatology Team is involved in multiple clinical research studies, focused on expanding the understanding of paediatric aspects of skin disorders and new therapies for both common and uncommon skin disorders .

Teaching continues to be an integral part of the program with dermatology residents completing their core rotations on a monthly, six-month or six week basis depending on their level of training.  In addition, all paediatric residents rotate though the Dermatology Clinic in their first and third year of training. An internationally renowned fellowship program has been implemented that attracts trainees from all over the world. Currently, four to six fellows per year are completing their specialized fellowship in Paediatric Dermatology.
The Dermatology Group is actively involved in teaching locally, nationally and internationally. The Paediatric Dermatology Update, an event initiated in 2004 and held every two years, attracts family doctors, paediatricians and dermatologists provincially and internationally.
