Education and training
TRAINING AT SICKKIDS
The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) is a public, teaching hospital specializing in leading-edge paediatric care, education and research. The Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is one of the busiest departments at SickKids caring for chronic and acute conditions to the most complex patients with musculoskeletal disease.
In addition to patient care, we are an active teaching center associated with training some of the best and brightest students from the University of Toronto and around the world. Resident doctors training to become plastic and reconstructive surgeons spend time on rotation at SickKids. In addition, each year, we train four to six fellows (qualified surgeons) from all points of the globe who are interested in pediatric sub-specialization. Finally, between 80 to 100 visiting surgeons and students visit our unit each year.
We believe that interdisciplinary care, collaborative research and valuable teaching will give fellows the skills required to undertake the most important issues in children's musculoskeletal disease.
UPCOMING TRAINING EVENTS
The Paediatric Hand Study Group meeting will take place in May 2016. Our Division will host approximately 50-100 paediatric hand surgeons and therapists form across North America. We will cover topics encompassing the breadth of surgery and therapy related to pediatric hand conditions. More information to follow.
