Empowering Next-Generation Researchers in Perinatal and Child Health (ENRICH)
Dr. Melissa Parker, Associate Professor, Department of Pediatrics & ENRICH Centre Leader
The recently launched ENRICH platform (a re-envisioning of the former Canadian Child Health Clinician Scientist Program) aims to build national capacity for child health research through training, awards, and mentorship opportunities. An established researcher serves as the ENRICH Centre Leader in each of the 16 Pediatric Academic centres. Locally, Dr. Melissa Parker serves in this role and will provide an overview of the ENRICH Platform and available opportunities.
Within the Enrichment Program, PILLAR aims to launch academic researchers. In 2023, the Department of Pediatrics will be supporting participation of two early career faculty members in PILLAR. With expressions of interest due internally November 30, 2022, this is a great opportunity to learn more and ask questions.
