Welcome from the Chair of the Department of Pediatrics
Welcome to the Pediatric Endocrinology Fellowship Program at McMaster University! Under the direction of Dr. Ereny Bassilious, the Program provides highly valued trainees with advanced training in clinical medicine, research and education in the field of pediatric endocrinology.
Our trainees play an important role in the care provided at McMaster Children’s Hospital, an academic health science center dedicated exclusively to children and adolescents. The hospital serves a population of 2.3 million people from south central Ontario and the surrounding communities, exposing our subspecialty residents and fellows to a diverse spectrum of endocrine disorders thus allowing them to gain valuable clinical experience.
Our faculty are the heart of the program. They possess a wide range of expertise and encourage a culture of collaboration found throughout the Department of Pediatrics. The academic division of pediatric endocrinology includes six pediatric endocrinologists with various interests including clinical education, education research, basic science research, bone and calcium metabolism, obesity management, type 1 and type 2 diabetes, and disorders of sex development. Subspecialty pediatric Endocrinology training is a priority for our faculty who are always available for consultation and mentorship.
The fellowship program offers numerous possibilities for highly qualified, motivated candidates, and I invite you to learn more about the Pediatric Endocirnology Training Program and the opportunities that are available here at McMaster University.
