The Department of Pediatrics, Faculty of Medicine, has played a vital role in developing undergraduate, residency and clinical fellowship training programs for over 50 years.   The strength of our Department lies in three areas:  teaching, research and exemplary patient care. 

Two hundred and fifty-six undergraduate medical students are enrolled in our courses each year, not including the visiting medical students from Commonwealth and North American Medical Schools who come to us for elective opportunities.

Our general pediatric training program is four years in length with 60 pediatric residents participating. Our subspecialty and post-doctoral Pediatric training programs have over 70 trainees.
