Each resident is given a pager for communication purposes. These pagers are on loan from Alberta Health Services (AHS) and are distributed on Orientation Day or can be picked up from the PME office. Prior to leaving the training program, trainees must return their pagers to the Postgraduate Medical Education Office (2-76 Zeidler Ledcor).
The user of the pager assumes all responsibility and liability for its safe keeping and return. If a pager is lost, misplaced, or damaged, the user agrees to pay a $50.00 replacement fee. This fee is payable to Alberta Health Services at the Casher's office.
An initial deposit is not required for the pagers. Replacement fees are only charged to those residents who lose or damage their pagers. This fee is non-refundable.
