Who we are
The Residents Section, founded in 1990, provides a network for those in paediatric training. The section makes up nearly a quarter of CPS membership and represents 94% of all paediatric residents in Canada. It provides a forum for residents to develop ideas and discuss issues related to the training and education of Canadian paediatric residents. The section is active in areas such as advocacy and professional development, particularly during the CPS Annual Conference.
Residents are the future of paediatrics and are integral members of the CPS. The section has representation on the CPS Board of Directors and a representative from each paediatric program in Canada is appointed to the section executive committee to act as a liaison between residents and the CPS.
All first year residents receive complimentary CPS membership from July, when they begin their residency, until December 31 of the following year.
