The PICU has eight pediatric intensivists and a strong research program.
Research grants for fellows are available from the CHEO Research Institute. Trainees may explore projects in active areas of research including medical education, critical care response teams, patient safety, organ transplantation, vitamin D and corticosteroids.
In 2013, two division members won significant research awards; Dr. Dayre McNally won the Department of Pediatrics Research Mentorship Award and Dr. Kusum Menon won the CHEO Research Institute Outstanding Researcher Award.
Within the past five years, three of our trainees have been recognized for outstanding research projects, winning awards for the top CHEO fellow research project twice and best oral presentation at the Canadian Critical Care Forum.
In addition to the PICU faculty, there are numerous opportunities for research projects and collaboration in both clinical and basic science areas through the CHEO Research Institute.
