Ministry funding is provided for those qualified residents who are eligible for licensure on the educational register of the Province of Alberta. This requires that the applicant be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada and have completed the Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination. Limited non-ministry monies may occasionally be available for certain highly qualified applicants who fail to meet these criteria. The applications of outstanding individuals for whom funding is provided by a foreign government will be seriously considered.
Qualified residents may apply for research training positions funded by the Royal College Clinical Investigator Program. Successful candidates will be expected to obtain a Masters Degree in a research field during the course of an extended residency. Funds are also available to support research Fellowships within the Division.
