A comprehensive Academic Half Day curriculum has been designed to cover all major topics within endocrinology and metabolism including both adult and pediatric topics. A weekly teaching session about specific pediatric endocrinology topics occurs for all house staff. Weekly pediatric endocrinology rounds include discussion of interesting inpatients and outpatients and teaching through a journal club or an evidence-based review. An additional monthly teaching session for pediatric endocrinology residents ensures coverage of objectives not addressed in the weekly teaching sessions.
Teaching of non-medical expert CanMEDS roles is provided with workshops within the Academic Half Day curriculum and during pediatric subspecialty resident retreats. Residents are encouraged to attend summer research methodology seminars hosted by the CHEO Emergency Medicine Program. Ottawa city-wide Endocrinology Grand Rounds are held weekly.
