Our activities include a yearly high level scientific and educational meeting, which is hosted on a rotating basis by pediatric endocrinology centres from across Canada.
CPEG works to represent Canadian pediatric endocrinologists and our patients on standing committees within the Canadian Society of Endocrinology and Metabolism (CSEM) and the Pediatric Endocrine Society (PES).
CPEG offers clinical and research fellowships for Canadian trainees. To date, over 35 pediatric endocrinology fellows have received support through the CPEG fellowship program.
The Canadian Pediatric Endocrine Group / Groupe Canadien d’Endocrinologie Pédiatrique (CPEG / GCEP) held its first independent meeting in London, Ontario, in 2007. Canadian pediatric endocrinologists had met regularly before, but within the framework of larger groups, such as the joint meetings of the Canadian Diabetes Association and of the Canadian Society of Endocrinology and Metabolism (CDA/CSEM) or of groups with a narrower mandate, such as the Canadian Growth Hormone Advisory Committee. However, there had been a longstanding desire of pediatric endocrinologists to form an independent group. CPEG therefore became a self-standing association in 2006 and started organizing its own annual meetings.
The Canadian Pediatric Endocrine Group (CPEG) is the official Canadian association for pediatric endocrinology. Our membership is comprised mostly of pediatric endocrinologists, pediatric endocrine nurses, and pediatric subspecialty residents (fellows) who are training to become endocrinologists. We are a highly collaborative and collegial group dedicated to caring for children and adolescents with endocrine disorders.
