Creative Professional Activity Grant

The Creative Professional Activity grant competition was introduced in 2005 to encourage and promote the clinical academic scholarship activity and careers of the members of the Department of Paediatrics at SickKids.

The competition is open to all clinical departmental faculty, priority being given to junior faculty whose roles involve a significant amount of clinical time. Faculty are encouraged to submit innovative research approaches to improving the scholarly care of patients, as well as clinically relevant projects that will have a direct impact on better care for our patients and families.

Successful grant winners over the last decade have a strong record of publishing their work in high impact peer reviewed journals, presenting nationally and internationally and leading to external funding for further work in the area of study. Importantly these projects have also resulted in many rapid innovations in models of care and advances in practice with direct impact on children at SickKids and elsewhere.

Congratulations to the 2020 SickKids Department of Paediatrics Creative Professional Activity Grant Winners.

In addition to the regular competition in 2020, we elected to have an additional competition to recognize the importance of clinical research related to the current COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on children.
