About Anna C Gunz

Dr. Anna Gunz is a pediatric critical care specialist at the Children's Hospital whose research mainly addresses climate change and health (particularly regarding eco-distress & lived experience, health equity and system-change), transport medicine, measuring child health outcomes based on access to care, and developing quality metrics and a registry to enable further research.

Children's Health Collaborators: Erin Peebles and Tamara Van Hooren


Dr. Gunz completed her medical degree and paediatric residency at McMaster University. She completed her training in critical care medicine at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario in Ottawa, followed by additional critical care fellowship training at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. She has numerous roles within Children’s Hospital and the University of Western Ontario, including Program Director for the Paediatric Critical Care Medicine Program, Director of the Neonatal Paediatric Transport Team, Associate Program Director of the Paediatric Residency Program, and Co-Lead for Competency Based Medical Education, Department of Paediatrics.

Dr. Gunz’s research interests are in the field of transport medicine. This stems from a belief that all children should have equitable access to critical care serves, regardless of where they present. Given the extensive geography of the country and the centralization of specialized paediatric medical and surgical services in large centers, she sees transport medicine as the bridge to facilitating this care. Specifically, Dr. Gunz led a national consensus process to develop and define standardized transport quality metrics and is interested in working with a national team to develop a national paediatric transport database to facilitate future quality of care initiatives and other prospective research projects. In addition, Dr. Gunz has an interest in environmental sustainability, climate change and health, and is working on various advocacy projects related to this.
