The Division of Adolescent Medicine is very involved in education as well as clinical research. Division members have held, or currently hold, multiple peer reviewed grants and present regularly at international and national forums on a variety of topics related to adolescent health.
Through collaborations with the eating disorder program at CHEO, division members have led and co-led innovative initiatives designed to help improve overall outcomes and engage families throughout the treatment process.
The division is also currently participating in multi-centre trials involving issues such as alcohol abuse and medication interactions with illicit substances.
Interested trainees may have opportunities to engage in scholarly activity during clinical rotations depending on their own specific interests and studies that are planned or already underway.
Research areas include:
- Eating disorders
- Gender diversity
- Adolescent pregnancy and parenting
- Vulnerable youth
