Tania Dumont

Investigaor, CHEO Research Institute

Dr. Dumont completed her medical school in French at the university of Sherbrooke followed by a residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Ottawa and a Pediatric & Adolescent Gynecology fellowship at Sick Kids in Toronto. She has been practicing Pediatric & Adolescent Gynecology at CHEO since 2011 and has been a Clinical Investigator sine 2015. Dr. Dumont’s teaching and research interests lie in the fields of medical education specifically simulation training in Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology (PAG).

Dr. Dumont is an Associate Professor at the University of Ottawa and teaches at both the undergraduate and post-graduate levels. She frequently has medical students, residents and fellows learning with her in clinic, on call, and in the operating room. She is an ePortfolio coach, a Simulation instructor for clerks and residents, a bootcamp lecturer for clerks rotating through Ob/Gyn and she also teaches a variety of CPD and didactic lectures. She is the Fellowship Program Director for the Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology program and is the senior co-chair of the Resident Education Committee for the North American Society of Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology (NASPAG).

In 2012, she developed with Dr Rob Klaassen the Young Women with Bleeding Disorders clinic at CHEO and in 2017 she helped develop the combined Endocrinology-Gynecology clinic at CHEO. She is the lead Gynecologist for this unique combined clinic which allows young women with common disorders to both clinics to be seen in one visit. Finally, Dr. Dumont’s patient care philosophy is to treat patients like she would want her family members and dearest friends treated. She ensures patients are given options, counseled appropriately and have the opportunity to ask questions so they may make the best decisions for their health and well-being.

Research Projects

  1. Vaginal metastases of Wilms’ Tumor in a pediatric patient: a rare case


    Treatment regimens for Wilms’ tumor have evolved based on a complex risk-stratification system with the goal of maximizing cure and minimizing toxicity. There are two major groups that have developed staging systems and treatment protocols, namely the Children's Oncology Group (COG) and the International Society of Paediatric Oncologists (SIOP), but both approaches have comparable clinical outcomes. Treatment refinement has taken into consideration multiple prognostic factors and has led to excellent five-year overall survival rates (90%).

  2. Evaluation of Fertility Preservation Counseling and Treatments for Female Oncology Patients in an Urban Pediatric Canadian Center


    This study presents contemporary data on the rates of FP counseling in Canadian pediatric female oncological patients and demonstrates low rates of FP counseling in our patient population.

  3. Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology practices: A national survey of Canadian gynecologists


    Attention must be given to better training for our residents via available curriculums and teaching modalities, as well as increased access to CME for OB/GYNs.

  4. The Current State of Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology Residency Training in Canada: Summary of Educational Resources to Enhance the Achievement of Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology Objectives


    This paper details these resources and provides a 4-week PAG schedule to accommodate ObGyn residency training programs.

  5. The Current State of Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology Residency Training in Canada: A Needs Assessment From Program Directors


    PDs should be provided with the available PAG resources and resident elective opportunities.
