For the second year in a row, University of Toronto (U of T) medical students have ranked the Paediatric program at Scarborough and Rouge Hospital’s (SRH) Centenary site as the top teaching program among all 21 paediatric teaching sites in the GTA.
“This outstanding achievement speaks to the dedication of our Paediatricians and the high quality teaching they provide in every single encounter with the students,” said Linda Calhoun, Vice President, Patient Services and Chief Nursing Executive at SRH.
The Centenary site Paediatric program received these honours at the annual U of T undergraduate dinner on December 5. The event brings together supervisors from all paediatric teaching programs in the GTA, along with the undergraduate director from U of T and SickKids Hospital. Centenary’s Paediatric program has been rated as one of the top three teaching programs by U of T students for the last 10 years.
“Our Centenary site offers students a welcoming learning experience with a diverse mix of patients and an exceptional variety of subspecialty clinics,” said Dr. Karen Chang, Chief of Paediatrics SRH’s Centenary site.
Dr. Yehuda Nofech-Mozes, Paediatrics Education Lead, Centenary, SRH also notes that “another aspect that makes the students feel welcome and comfortable is the incredible team of nurses, unit clerks and secretaries, dietitians, medical education officers, pharmacists, and social workers who provide important support for the students.”
SRH accommodates more than 750 clinical student placements across the hospital’s various programs and services each year. More information is available here.
