The Department of Paediatrics at St. Michael's Hospital is an academic department, fully affiliated with the University of Toronto, Department of Medicine. Our department provides neonatal and pediatric services for southeast Toronto's diverse population and is considered a leader in urban neonatal, child, and youth health care as well as social pediatrics. The Department's mission is to provide exemplary care for Toronto's inner city population, and our members are dedicated to caring for children who are vulnerable or at-disadvantage, whose social circumstances may provide barriers that impact their overall health and development.
The Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder (FASD) Clinic is a new MOH funded clinic within ambulatory paediatrics at St. Michael's. This clinic will draw on the unique strengths, experiences, and contributions of a multidisciplinary team in order to provide comprehensive diagnostic assessments to alcohol exposed children. By identifying children with FASD, the team can then collaborate to provide expert recommendations to care partners for the ongoing care, support, and treatment of these children and their families.
As a member of the interdisciplinary team, the Psychologist will be responsible for providing testing, diagnostic clarification, and treatment recommendations to patients, families, and providers to contribute to clinical management of patients. The Psychologist will participate in education/teaching, research, quality improvement, and program evaluation initiatives. Other activities include:

On Aug. 1, 2017, Providence Healthcare, St. Joseph’s Health Centre and St. Michael’s Hospital (the Network) officially united under a single health network, to advance the health of our patients, clients and residents, and our urban communities. The Network’s more than 10,000 staff and physicians serve communities from Etobicoke to Scarborough. With an annual budget of more than $1 billion and 1,100 inpatient beds, the Network provides the full spectrum of care from primary, secondary, community, tertiary and quaternary care services to post-acute through rehabilitation, palliative care and long-term care.
Rooted in the legacy of our founders, the Sisters of St. Joseph, the three organizations share a commitment to Catholic healthcare, a vocation to serve the most vulnerable and those most in need with compassion and dignity; to improve health and the overall social determinants of health, rather than just treat disease. True to Catholic Social Teaching, a calling to social justice and the common good, our organizations prioritize a holistic and compassionate approach, recognizing the whole person in the community, the fundamental link between spirituality and healing, and the diverse cultural and spiritual needs of those served.
