Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

Education and training


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.

The Division offers education and learning opportunities for medical students,  fellowships, residency  and observerships. See U of T Plastic Surgery for more.



The Paediatric Hand Study Group meeting was hosted by our Division in 2016. The Division hosted approximately 50-100 paediatric hand surgeons and therapists from  across North America and covered topics encompassing the breadth of surgery and therapy related to pediatric hand conditions.
