Continuing Professional Development

Dr. Johannes Keunen, Director of Continuing Professional Development & Knowledge Translation, works with our faculty to strenghten professional development activities across a range of divisions.

In partnership with Continuing Education and Professional Development (CEPD), the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology strives to strengthen the quality of life-long education of physicians and health care providers locally, in Canada, and around the world. Our mission, through education, is to develop and equip health leaders in the area of women and infant health through research and the dissemination of the most up-to-date and relevant knowledge.

Interhospital Rounds

The Department organizes monthly Interhospital Rounds, hosted by Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, St. Michael's Hospital, and Mount Sinai Hospital. These rounds are presented on Friday mornings at one of these locations, and broadcast across many GTA hospital sites. Lectures include the Annual International Women's Day Lecture, the Cannell Lecture, the Carol Cowell Lectureship in Paediatric & Adolescent Gynaecology, and Global Women's Health Lecture. Each of the three fully-affiliated sites also organize weekly grand rounds. Interhospital and Grand Rounds are sent via email to our U of T Ob-Gyn community throughout the year.

CPD Programs

The Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology is committed to providing ongoing educational support for health care professionals and will be moving our postgraduate education to a virtual platform (using Zoom) for the foreseeable future. We have enlisted some of our most informed and engaging clinicians/teachers to present on many important topics in women’s health.

Please see our list of upcoming programs below.
