Fellowship Training

For those interested in continuing their Critical Care Medicine training into specialty areas we offer fellowship training opportunities in both clinical and research environments.


What is a Fellow?

A fellow is a post-MD trainee who is registered with the Postgraduate Medical Education Office and is pursuing supervised clinical and/or research training which is NOT accredited towards fulfilling certification eligibility requirements of existing residency programs recognized by the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC), or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC).

Examples of Post-MD trainees who should be classified as a fellow are:

  • Any trainee who has completed Canadian specialty training requirements and is pursuing clinical training or research within their own specialty field beyond the requirements for specialty or subspecialty certification.

  • Any trainee who may be ineligible for Canadian certification because previous training is not accredited by the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC), or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC).

  • Any trainee who is registered for the purpose of obtaining specific experience in a specialty/subspecialty which is not currently recognized by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC), or for which there is no accredited program at the University of Alberta


Funding

Funding is specific to each fellowship opportunity.

Please be aware that international trainees require a sponsoring agency such as a country or hospital and must be eligible to register with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta (CPSA) which will need both LMCC part II and proof of English language skills
