Pain in Child Health (PICH)




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 Canada research centres in pediatric pain to provide a training consortium to strengthen the preparation of trainees to become independent investigators in pediatric pain.

The Pain in Child Health (PICH) program is a community of researchers focused on cultivating new talent and promoting new discoveries. Our goal is to make a lasting international impact on children’s pain, benefiting children’s health, and their futures.
