University of Alberta Hospital

The Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry has world-class facilities for research, patient care and education.

The majority of pre-clinical education is conducted on the University of Alberta campus in proximity to the University of Alberta Hospital (UAH). During the clerkship years (year 3 and 4), students train at a number of hospitals and medical clinics in the greater Edmonton area, as well as locations in north central Alberta.

  • Edmonton Clinical Health Academy is a learner-focused centre where all University of Alberta health-science disciplines work collaboratively to develop a positive model for patient-centred care.
