About Us

The Pediatrics Section represents the 1200 plus pediatricians in Ontario as a body within the Ontario Medical Association. The Section keeps pediatricians informed on updates relevant to them through our journal, Pediatric News, and through information mail-outs and web-posts in our Premium Pediatrics Section Members’ Intranet.

The Pediatrics Section is the political representative of 1200 plus pediatricians in the province of Ontario.

The Pediatrics Section holds two annual meetings, usually in April-May and October-November. We encourage all pediatricians to attend and contribute to these meetings. At these meetings, communications are open for the presentment of issues and an open dialogue always facilitates problem-solving.

The Pediatrics Section is always working towards expanding our reach across the province by hosting provincial-wide meetings. In the past year, we have brought our Section updates to Toronto, London, Ottawa, and Hamilton among other cities. If you are a Pediatrician who is interested in having us join you in your city, please email us at
