More about the Pediatric Chairs of Canada
Founded in 1960 as the Assembly of Canadian University Pediatric Department Heads, and incorporated as the Pediatric Chairs of Canada (PCC) in 2002, PCC represents the Departments of Pediatrics within the seventeen Canadian medical schools. Collectively they provide national leadership in research and education to promote the health and healthcare of children and youth in Canada.
Since 2007, through the Pediatric Academic Leadership Awards, the Pediatric Chairs of Canada (PCC) has promoted the development of excellence and leadership within specific career paths. We believe the health of children and youth is dependent on leadership in each of the roles of clinician practitioner, clinician educator, clinician investigator, young academic leaders, and in association with these rules, the provision of administrative leadership. To recognize, support, and promote these roles among academic pediatricians, PCC has established the National Pediatric Leadership Awards.
