Research

Overview
PLACEHOLDER TITLE

Fellows benefit from the Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine’s active research group that engages in ongoing collaborations with Pediatric Emergency Research Canada for clinical research and a growing portfolio of international health and education research. 

Fellows are expected to complete a scholarly project during their training and present their findings at a local, national, or international conference. Fellows meet early on with the program director to identify areas of interest and subsequently identify a faculty supervisor who will guide them through the scholarly process, question development, methodology, data analysis and submission for presentation. The Department of Pediatrics and McMaster University provide many research award opportunities to help support scholarly work.
