Clinician Scientist Program

The Department of Pediatrics at the Univeristy of Saskatchewan recently hosted a mini-symposium for trainees of the Canadian Child Health Clinician Scientist Program: "Mingling Minds Molecules and Machines: Participating Effectively in Collaborative Pediatric Research".


The program included a tour of the Canadian Light Source (the national synchrotron facility) and the Vaccine and Infectious Diseases Organization on the University of Saskatchewan campus. As well a session on First Nations perspectives on child health research was held at the Wanuskewin Heratige Park.   


The symposium provided trainees with hands-on interactive experience that will help them to appreciate the opportunities, importance, and potential challenges of participating as a collaborator and leader in interdiciplinary and transdisciplinary child health research. This symposium provided an opportunity for trainees to consider how their own current research interests could benefit from multidisciplinary collaborations.

The symposium was generously sponsored by the Canadian Child Health Clinician Scientist Program and the Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation.
