2016 Paediatric Urology Laparoscopy Course (PULC)


Walid Farhat, MD
The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids)
Toronto, ON

Dr. Walid Farhat is a Professor at the University of Toronto, as well as the Associate Surgeon-in-Chief of Education for Perioperative Services at SickKids. Farhat maintains a clinical practice in paediatric urology and has a particular interest in minimal invasive surgery including laparoscopic and endourologic procedures in children. He has a keen interest in disseminating his knowledge and expertise in minimal invasive procedures for both clinical trainees and his patients. He initiated the Paediatric Urology Laparoscopy Course in 2007 with the goal to introduce and improve training methods for teaching laparoscopy.  

The course has since expanded to be offered both nationally (Canadian Urological Association) and internationally (Kuwait and Brazil).  Within his role, Farhat has been concentrating his efforts on establishing a surgical simulation suite within SickKids, with the hopes to eventually lead to a surgical simulation centre through the Learning Institute.
