Training Programs

The University of Toronto Training Program in Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition is based at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) and maintains a strong tradition of training clinicians from all over the world for academic careers encompassing research, education and clinical care. The training program is the largest in Canada and comparably sized to the premier training programs in this subspecialty in the United States.

The training program is fully accredited in Canada, by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons. Training in Toronto is also fully recognized by the American Board of Pediatrics in the USA, and the Royal Australasian College of Physicians in Australia and New Zealand.

The core fellowship program follows a three-year structure with one clinical year followed by two research-focused years. Previous trainees who have completed the three-year fellowship program have been extremely successful in obtaining high caliber academic and leadership positions in Canada, the United States and around the world. Graduates of the program typically continue research activities and hold extramural grants to support their research programs.

We also offer one-year clinical training fellowships and subspecialty fellowship programs for advanced trainees who have completed the majority of their core training in Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition elsewhere.
