It is with the greatest of pleasure that I welcome you, on behalf of the Division, to our Paediatric Orthopaedic Surgery website here at the Hospital for Sick Children.
We continue to be the busiest surgical unit in the Hospital from a clinical point of view, offering a full portfolio of subspecialty expertise, whilst maintaining our high profile in research and teaching.
Our website will provide you with a comprehensive review of the opportunities available in terms of weekly rounds and clinics, both at Sick Kids and Holland Bloorview along with outreach clinics. The specific clinical and research interests of each of the Staff are featured along with details of the organization of the rotations (routinely all Fellows except the Spine Fellow will do four three month rotations).
There are special articles this year from Simon Kelley on limb reconstruction and we warmly welcome our new hire Mark Camp who is interviewed and provides some very helpful insights into the transition from Residency, via Fellowship, to a Staff position.
There is a housekeeping section on important issues such as on-call, professional and personal leave and onto Canadian work permits and licensure which are best read at your very earliest convenience. On a lighter note, details of our social programme are included with skiing and baseball being the highlights.
There is a diary of the major academic events of the year at SickKids and with the University of Toronto. This year we entertained David Roye from New York and John Herzenburg from Baltimore as Rang and Salter Visiting Professors respectively.
At present we have Fellows from the UK, Ireland, and Italy along with our two SF Match Fellows from the USA who will join an extensive worldwide alumni network. As of August 1st, 2016 the Fellowship start dates will all coincide (in common with the majority of comparable fellowships). This will allow Fellows to be easily identifiable by their year group and more significantly, avoid the necessity of landing in Toronto in February when the climate can be less than temperate!
The Sick Kids Orthopaedic Fellowship is in the best of health, with Staff at all levels geared to providing the very best experience from every aspect.
All good wishes
