Program Highlights

  • We have a strong core of general pediatric and community pediatric training experiences in addition to a diverse complement of subspecialty pediatric exposures. With no RCPSC fellowship programs, residents in our program have ample direct contact with pediatric faculty and first-hand clinical exposures early and throughout their training. Most of the training takes place within the new Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital (JPCH), which opened in September 2019.
  • The Pediatric Program maintains a robust academic curriculum including:
    • Protected academic half-day
    • Procedural skills and simulation
    • Code Navy events (unit wide simulation)
    • Wellness rounds
    • Journal club and critical appraisal
    • Case rounds, interpretation rounds, and topic rounds
    • Departmental Grand Rounds
    • Practice examinations (STACERs, OSCEs, MCQs and SAQs)
    • Indigenous Health curriculum
    • Teaching course (TIPS)
    • And much, much more.
  • Resident scholarly projects (research) are well supported through a network of research experts (Division Head of Pediatric Research; Department Research Coordinator; and Resident Research Facilitator). The University of Saskatchewan also provides excellent research supports, and all residents are provided funding to present their research.
  • Resident wellness is an important part of training and is supported through several resident-led and faculty-led initiatives including wellness rounds, ice cream rounds, protected biannual resident retreats, staff/resident events, and other opportunities. Residents are well-supported by their program directors, administrative staff, and a progressive resident contract through the Resident Doctors of Saskatchewan (RDoS).
  • Our program is located in the beautiful city of Saskatoon — home to the University of Saskatchewan. With an increasingly diverse population and a unique landscape, there are numerous cultural, athletic, and social opportunities unique to the city. Highlights include: the Remai Modern, the Meewasin River Valley, the Persephone Theatre, and much, much more.
