The University of Ottawa Faculty of Medicine’s Pediatric Critical Care Medicine Fellowship is a two-year program. There is a possibility of a third year for further research or academic pursuits. The fellowship is open to trainees who have satisfactorily completed at least three core years in pediatrics or who have certification in general surgery, emergency medicine, anesthesia or internal medicine, with sufficient pediatric experience.
At the end of the program, trainees will be qualified to sit the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCSPC) subspecialty fellowship examinations in Pediatric Critical Care and be qualified to function as an independent pediatric critical care physician and apply for an academic position at university-based pediatric critical care programs.
The program is primarily based at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) which provides leading-edge pediatric care to the Ottawa region as well Eastern Ontario, Western Quebec, Nunavut and parts of Northern Ontario.
