The CCHCSP network is grounded in our guiding principles to help navigate us into the future. With these guiding principles as our compass, we will be able to make a bigger and broader impact in the scientific community and as a result, better health outcomes for all.
Partnered with 17 pediatric academic centres in Canada, a mentor is ready to help where ever you are.
The CCHCSP organizational structure provides our trainees with a formal and informal group of mentors who help develop core scientific skills, but more importantly, provide guidance in defining each trainee’s trajectory while maintaining a healthy work life balance. It’s our committees, centre leaders and the peer on peer mentoring among our trainees. It is access to the top clinician scientist in Canada across all disciplines within our program. This impact that we have left on each of our trainees, motivates them to give back and volunteer their time to our program on our committees and as informal mentors.
Executive Committee has the ultimate authority over the program and provides the strategic direction and operational aspects of CCHCSP. The committee is responsible to ensure that the program maintains its focus on meeting the needs for child health clinician scientist training in Canada, and keeps pace with the changing research landscape. The committee has final authority over the trainee selection process, financial stewardship, policies, guidelines, and appointment of the Director and program staff. The Program Operations Committee (Director and Program Manager) will implement the program and report to the Executive. New Executive Committee members are nominated by existing committee members, and approved to serve a 2-year term. This 6-person committee has representation from each of the 3 regions (Region 1: Atlantic Provinces & Quebec; Region 2: Ontario; Region 3: Prairies and British Columbia. In addition, trainee a representative and two disciplinary representatives are included.
The Curriculum Committee oversees the operation and advancement of the CCHCSP Core Curriculum. The committee members work directly with the CCHCSP Director and Program Manager to ensure effective up-to-date content and tools within the existing infrastructure and potential for novel tools and advancement. Committee members are nominated from the CCHCSP community and approved by the CCHCSP Executive to serve a 5-year term. The committee also guides the development of the content for the CCHCSP annual symposia and address any centre based concerns.
