Tuition and Additional Costs

Program fees

  • accommodations and meals for weekend in-person modules

Participants are responsible for the arrangement and cost of transportation to and from each of the five weekend in-person modules held in Edmonton and Banff, Alberta. 


Withdrawals and refunds

Failure to attend a weekend session does not constitute a formal withdrawal. If a participant chooses to withdraw from the Fellowship in Health System Improvement, written notice of withdrawal and request for refund must be submitted by email with the subject line “Notice of Withdrawal | Fellowship in Health System Improvement” to the following two email addresses:

  1. Faculty of Extension Registration Office at extweb@ualberta.ca
  2. School of Public Health at fhsi@ualberta.ca

In the event the program does not run, students will receive a full refund of all tuition paid. 

When a credit card is used for payment, the refund will be issued to the cardholder’s account. If payment was made by cash, debit card, cheque or invoice, the refund will be issued by cheque.
