The Division of Hematology is based at Kingston General Hospital (KGH), southeastern Ontario’s leading centre for complex-acute and specialty care and home to the Cancer Centre of Southeastern Ontario. KGH serves almost 500,000 people through its Kingston facility and 24 regional affiliate and satellite sites. KGH was ranked in 2011 as one of Canada’s Top 40 Research Hospitals by Research Infosource.
In addition to their Kingston experience, residents complete mandatory rotations in different centres. Two rotations in Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation occur at either Ottawa General Hospital or The Princess Margaret Cancer Centre in Toronto, or at another suitable centre if required. The rotation in Pediatric Hematology occurs at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. Residents also complete a Community Hematology rotation in Kitchener, providing them with a unique opportunity to manage acute myeloid leukemia in a community hospital and further developing resident hematology consultancy skills.
