Introducing April, Srilal and the Paediatric Program

Our Paediatric Program this year for DevelopingEM 2016 is again shaping up as a fantastic session with presenters discussing approaches to paediatric critical care medicine ranging from the prehospital world to ICU.

This year the session is being coordinated by April Kam and Srilal Desilva.


April is taking over from her Canadian compatriot Anthony Crocco and was part of our faculty last year in Havana. She is an Associate Professor of Paediatric Emergency Medicine in the Department of Paediatrics at McMaster University. She has worked around the globe and has a special interest in emergency medicine teaching and education. Check out her presentation from last year.
