A Message from the Program Director
“I love being the Program Director at NOSM. It is truly an honour to watch our future pediatricians grow and develop over the 3-4 years they are with us. As a small program, we have the flexibility to make changes quickly when needed and have created very innovative ways of delivering curriculum, which are both fun and educational! Our program highly values advocacy work and our residents learn to become stewards for change in their communities. I’m amazed by the incredible projects our residents have been involved with.”
Dr. Tara Baron
NOSM Pediatrics Program Director
The NOSM Pediatrics program includes core rotations and subspecialty rotations selected to incorporate a diversity of experience and proficiency in subspecialty areas that are integral to community based practice, but less commonly emphasized in traditional Pediatrics residency programs, in addition to world-class subspecialty and acute care rotations at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario.
Although the philosophy of training in this program has been developed from the practice of general consultant pediatricians, upon completion of the program, residents will be well positioned to pursue subspecialty training or embark upon a career in general consulting pediatrics.
