The uOttawa Faculty of Medicine’s Division of Infectious Diseases is based at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). The division provides family-centered general and subspecialized pediatric care in infectious diseases to children and youth up to 18 years of age in Eastern Ontario, Western Quebec and the Qikiqtani region of Nunavut.
The division’s seven faculty members are appointed within the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Ottawa and collaborate with Ottawa Public Health and partner hospitals in the management of community infectious diseases outbreaks affecting children.
Faculty members actively teach within the University of Ottawa’s undergraduate, postgraduate and continuing medical education programs. We prevent, diagnose, treat and monitor infectious diseases so kids, families and our community can be their healthiest.
