Associate Dean's Message

The Mission of the Postgraduate Medical Education office is to produce competent, caring physicians who will meet the needs of society, and through research training will contribute to the development of new knowledge. To do that we assist in the educational planning and functioning of more than 60 postgraduate programs located throughout Central and Northern Alberta. We also provide a wide variety of clinical and research fellowship programs. We enable resident physicians to obtain certification from the College of Family Physicians of Canada or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada by working in collaboration with national accreditation bodies, the provincial licensing authority, Alberta Health and Wellness, Alberta Health Services, the Professional Association of Resident Physicians of Alberta, foreign governments and other agencies. We are dedicated to the provision of a quality educational experience to enable the success of each postgraduate trainee.
