The Paediatric Gynaecology Fellowship at the Hospital for Sick Children at the University of Toronto, is a 1-year program. If the Fellow is an International Candidate, the one year may include the Pre-Assessment Program component. The length of the Preassessment Program varies (4-12 weeks). 

The Fellowship will focus on the diagnosis and management of congenital reproductive tract anomalies, paediatric and adolescent gynecologic malignancies, gynecologic disorders in medically ill children, reproductive endocrinopathies affecting children, common problems in pediatric gynecology, adolescent pregnancy and surgical techniques, pre- and postoperative care in paediatric patients.

During the year, the fellow will participate in general pediatric gynecology clinics, the Combined Gynecology-Endocrinology clinic, The Multidisciplinary Urogenital Clinic, Combined Contraceptive Clinic, Young Mothers Program (Adolescent Pregnancy Clinic) and in the latter half of the fellowship will have an independent Fellow Clinic, supervised by one of the attending physicians.  During the year, the fellow will rotate through the Pediatric Surgery Service for a period of 6 weeks. The fellow will also participate in an ambulatory rotation comprised of clinics in adolescent medicine, SCAN, Dermatology, and Urology.

Call responsibilities for the fellow include a 1 in 3 home call rota for pediatric gynecology. During the Pediatric Surgery Rotation the fellow will participate in the call rota at the level of a resident.  After completion of the ambulatory rotation, the fellow will join the SCAN team for on call for acute sexual assault cases.
