The Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism is based at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). It has grown from three faculty members in 1995 to our current complement of eight full-time and three part-time faculty. The clinical programs are supported by 16 allied health professionals including nurses, dietitians, social workers, clinical psychologists and an exercise specialist. The team also includes 12 research personnel.
Our clinical programs include roughly 8,000 patient visits per year and are structured to provide care in the following areas:
- General endocrinology
- Bone health
- Transgendered youth
Our team’s mission is to provide comprehensive, evidence-based, family-centered, interdisciplinary, team-based care for children and youth with diabetes and other endocrine disorders. We also focus on educating and empowering patients, parents and the community to be active participants in the achievement of optimal health outcomes.
We also strive to educate current health care professionals in pediatric endocrinology and diabetes as well as train future leaders in the field to be at the forefront of research in pediatric endocrinology and to translate this research into improved clinical care.
