What topics are covered?

areas within paediatrics.
How are the topics chosen?
Final year paediatric residents complete a needs assessment
form that identifies core topics for the course. The top
40 topics are ranked; speakers are recommended by the residents and
recruited by the co-chairs.

Speakers are chosen from educational institutions across Canada and
are selected based on their expertise and familiarity with each selected topic.

the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons. All Royal College
Examiners have been excluded from participating in this program
or providing any input on selected topics and contents of the material
covered within each topic.

the participants. Feedback from the 2012 program shows:

the top-ranked topics identified in the needs assessments are selected.
Why is the
course only offered in Hamilton?
Presently, our level of funding does not permit offering the course
more than once annually, or in more than one location.
Hamilton is easily accessible from either Toronto Pearson Airport or Hamilton Airport and is centrally located by road for the majority of the participants.
Have you looked at webcasts or other similar "distance
