Indigenous child and youth health: The Canadian Paediatric Society and the National Collaborating Centre for Indigenous Health have produced a four-part training program on Indigenous child and youth health, designed for paediatric residents and suitable for other health professionals. The curriculum, which should be delivered by physicians with experience providing care to First Nations, Inuit and/or Métis children and youth, covers:

  • Demographics, data, and federal government relations
  • Common medical conditions
  • History, colonization and social determinants of health
  • Providing culturally safe care

Curriculum materials include slide decks, speaker notes, and reference handouts, and are available to Canadian Paediatric Society members at no cost. Visit the Member Centre to access the files, or this page for more information about our work in Indigenous child and youth health.

Global Child Health: A training program that provides residents with foundational knowledge around global child health issues. The curriculum is made for educators and consists of four one-hour interactive modules that have been designed to be taught as an educational series or standalone pieces, easily integrated into existing residency curricula. The modules focus on:

  • Global child mortality
  • Undernutrition
  • Fever in the returned child traveller
  • Children and youth new to Canada 

Curriculum materials include a trainer manual, four slide decks, handouts, and structured clinical exam cases, and are available to Canadian Paediatric Society members at no cost. Visit the Member Centre to access the files.

Assessment and Treatment of Disruptive Behaviour in Youth: Educational tools to teach resident physicians about the assessment and treatment of disruptive and aggressive behaviour in youth. The basic curriculum is targeted to residents in paediatrics and family medicine; the advanced curriculum targets residents in developmental paediatrics, adolescent medicine, and psychiatry. The curriculae take two and four hours, respectively, and consist of slide sets, pre- and post-tests, and handouts. For more information visit
