UAlberta's Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Training Program is centered at the Royal Alexandra Hospital (RAH) in Edmonton. The RAH is the tertiary referral centre for northern Alberta, northern British Columbia, and the Northwest Territories. RAH houses the Lois Hole Hospital for Women, a leading centre in women’s health which receives approximately 75,000 patient visits annually. Our residents also spend time at three community hospitals in the Edmonton area: the Grey Nuns Hospital, the Misericordia and the Sturgeon General.
There are 6 funded residency positions per year and approximately 34 residents in the program annually. Residents work with a supportive and dynamic team of educators, clinicians and researchers throughout their training. Current academic faculty includes 8 perinatologists, 6 gynecologic oncologists, 7 reproductive endocrinologists, 5 urogynecologists, 1 urogynecologic fellow, 7 basic scientists, and many generalists.
Our residency program has full accreditation from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Our graduates consistently place above average in the national Royal College examinations and go on to enjoy rewarding careers in gynecological and obstetrical medicine across Canada and beyond.
Program Curriculum: Years 1 – 5
