For Trainees

There are numerous training opportunities available in our Centre. We are affiliated with Dalhousie University, which offers a variety of undergraduate, graduate, and health professional training programs.

You can read more “About Us” as well as review the research interests of “Our Faculty” and then contact those faculty whose research interests you the most to discuss potential training options in their research programs.

Our Centre, faculty, and trainees are part of the Pain in Child Health Training Consortium (PICH), sponsored by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research. PICH links leading Canadian research centres in pediatric pain to provide a training consortium to strengthen the preparation of trainees to become independent investigators in pediatric pain. Click here to visit the PICH web site to learn more.
