The Division of Emergency Medicine provides clinical expertise, academic excellence and leadership to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) Emergency Department. CHEO delivers specialized emergency services to over 70,000 children and youth annually from Eastern Ontario, Western Quebec, parts of Northern Ontario and Nunavut.
CHEO’s Emergency Department treats the diverse needs of children, youth and their families with acute illness, injury or crisis in a dynamic and efficient manner. We are a compassionate, multi-disciplinary team, leading in education and innovative healthcare. Our team members include 27 pediatric emergency medicine specialists (many with the new RCPSC PEM certification), along with several part-time physicians who have core training in pediatric emergency medicine, pediatrics, family medicine or emergency medicine.
Several division members hold important leadership positions within CHEO, the CHEO Research Institute, the University of Ottawa and in key national organizations including the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and the Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada.
The division has a long-standing and well-recognized academic mission as demonstrated by its active research program and multiple training streams, including our Pediatric Emergency Medicine residency (fellowship) training program.
