These are exciting times for research collaborations between our SickKids CCMH clinical services, The Hospital for Sick Children and our community partners. SickKids CCMH is undertaking a renewal of our research framework and priorities and we look forward to making an important contribution to the field of child and youth mental health.
SickKids CCMH also provides education placements across all of our clinical disciplines and within some of our administrative functions. We are proud to support young professionals in the development of their knowledge and preparation for their careers. Equally, we are grateful for the learning and creativity that they bring to our teams.
The SickKids CCMH research program has been revitalized by a renewed approach that will integrate research across clinical services, reflecting our commitment to better measurement of outcome and impact of our services. The model will be established with the addition of a Clinician Scientist to our team in 2021. This leadership will expand our capacity to generate important research and contribute to the evidence base in child and youth mental health.
SickKids CCMH has a long and dedicated history to the teaching and training of future health-care professionals. We offer many educational opportunities to a diverse and talented group of trainees and students who enrich the clinical environment for our staff and clients.
SickKids CCMH is affiliated with the University of Toronto and other leading universities and colleges in Ontario. Every year, over 100 learners come from multiple disciplines and serve clients and their families in all SickKids CCMH programs, reaching children throughout Toronto and beyond. See our academic partners.
SickKids CCMH is committed to education and capacity building in the child and youth mental health field by providing professional education services that supply high-quality clinical training and supervised placements to future children’s mental health professionals.
SickKids CCMH provides advanced training in psychiatry and social work through fellowship positions of one-or two-years’ duration. Trainees holding these fellowships will function as junior staff at SickKids CCMH.
Since 1989, SickKids CCMH has graduated over 100 fellows who are currently practising across Canada and the United States.
