Verifications of Postgraduate Medical Education Training

Our office is responsible for maintaining training records for all current and former PGME trainees in the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry at the University of Alberta. We provide confidential composite verifications of training directly to credentialing and licensing bodies.

Verification services include the following:

  • Verifications of residency (CFPC and RCPSC)
  • Verifications of fellowships (AFC and non-AFC)
  • Verifications of training with university seal

Verifications are processed within 24 hours of receiving a request, and on a case-by-case basis. During peak periods, requests may take up to 72 hours to process.
