Dr. Jessica Foulds
Our strengths include tremendous clinical diversity, rural and northern locations, Indigenous health, international health opportunities and health advocacy. Our program boasts outstanding exam preparation, excellent personal and academic mentorship and award-winning educators.
Our department collaborates with the Women and Children’s Health Research Institute (WCHRI) and is the home of world-renowned researchers. We support resident research and encourage scholarly projects.
We provide services and education in all pediatric subspecialties, with exposure to unique programs. The Stollery Children’s Hospital is the Western Canada referral centre for all pediatric liver and small bowel transplants and all pediatric cardiac surgeries, including cardiac transplants. Our two intensive care units (medical/surgical and cardiac) and pediatric emergency see a wide variety of pediatric diagnoses. We have the largest geographic catchment area in North America.
Our residents are able to work with underserved populations through outreach clinics, Yellowknife rotations and a strong social pediatric program.
Our residents have gone on to meaningful careers across North America, both in the community and as academic faculty in general pediatrics and subspecialties. We love to hear of their ongoing successes.
