Postgraduate Incoming Electives

The Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry welcomes postgraduate trainees to complete an elective at one of its many leading health care facilities. Applicants must be enrolled in an accredited Postgraduate Medical Education program at another university. All training completed at the U of A will be evaluated and credited toward their academic requirements at their home institution.

All visiting residents must be listed on the Provisional Register of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta. CMPA liability coverage is also mandatory.

To apply, contact the program that you wish to pursue an elective in to arrange, then complete the In-Coming Elective Registration Form and send to the program. The form and supporting documents must be submitted at least three months prior to the beginning of the elective (6 months if you are from out of country).

Signed completed forms can be submitted to:
