Welcome to the Pediatrics Residency Program at Memorial University of Newfoundland!
The pediatric residency program at Memorial University provides excellent clinical training for both general pediatrics as well as for those students who undertake subspecialty pediatric training. While the majority of educational experiences occur at the Janeway Child Health and Rehabilitation Centre in St. John’s, we also work with multiple clinical sites though out the Newfoundland and New Brunswick to provide experiences in community pediatrics.
Our core curriculum, as outlined by the Royal College Requirements of Training, is delivered during the first three years of Postgraduate training with the fourth year focused on individualization of training to reflect the career needs of each student as they transition to practice.
In addition to core clinical rotations, our curriculum is delivered through other Faculty-supervised, organized academic activities including a high-fidelity simulation program, Academic Half Day and procedure days and Journal club. Our academic half day curriculum, which has a three year rotating schedule, covers all of the Royal College Medical Expert Objectives of Training as well as learning objectives from the other CanMeds roles.
As the only pediatric hospital in our island province, the environment provides rich learning opportunities. We accept 6 to 7 residents each year and generally have between 20-24 residents in our program. Our small size allows our residents to benefit from a high resident-to-faculty ratio. In addition, because there are no pediatric subspecialty training programs at Memorial, clinical learning opportunities are optimized for our pediatric residents.
Memorial Pediatrics is proud to provide an outstanding academic experience in a supportive and collegial environment.
