The goal of the Canadian Child Health Clinician Scientist Program (CCHCSP) is to train the next generation of child and youth health clinician scientists in a multidisciplinary context.
CCHCSP seeks to expand the cadre of paediatric clinician researchers training to be clinician scientist in our program, beyond those individuals whose salary awards are paid by CCHCSP. Recruitment of child health clinician-researchers funded via parallel national research training programs, will serve to enrich the number and quality of trainees who participate in CCHCSP’s multi- and interdisciplinary curriculum.
Upon acceptance into the CCHCSP CEP, trainees will be funded to attend and participate in the CCHCSP Annual National Symposium. This includes the non-compulsory opportunity to submit a poster abstract, participate in the Team Research Learning Program, and have a one on one Evaluation with a CCHCSP mentor. In addition, awardees will be requested to complete the CCHCSP web-based and centre based curriculum as part of their training.
