Sickkids Appoints Dr. Ronald Cohn as New Chief of Paediatrics

On behalf of the Canadian Association of Paediatric Health Centres (CAPHC) and all of its members, we would like to congratulate Dr Ronald Cohn for being appointed as the new Chief of Paediatrics, SickKids and Chair of Paediatrics at The University of Toronto.

Dr. Cohn is an outstanding clinician, scientist, and educator recruited to SickKids in 2012 to be the Chief of the Division of Clinical and Metabolic Genetics, Co-Director of the Centre for Genetic Medicine and Senior Scientist. He also became the Inaugural Women’s Auxiliary Chair in Clinical and Metabolic Genetics in April of 2013, and is an Associate Professor in the Departments of Paediatrics and Molecular Genetics at the University of Toronto (U of T).

Dr. Cohn will assume his responsibilities on July 1, 2016 following Dr. Denis Daneman’s completion of his ten-year term.

We look forward to working with Dr Cohn and to our continued collaboration and partnership with our many colleagues at the Hospital for Sick Children.
