Fellowship Training

The University of Alberta Radiology Fellowship programs provide advanced training, excellent clinical exposure and supervised experience in various aspects of radiology. The department is composed of a dynamic and innovative faculty committed to remaining in the forefront of new developments and clinical applications in the rapidly changing field of medical imaging. The strength of the department is the integration of the university department with clinical care practices, ranging from primary to quaternary care in the setting of 6 local hospitals and multiple community based radiology clinics. Our expanding facilities and programs, supported by our basic science and research divisions, enable us to offer comprehensive and varied learning opportunities to residents and fellows in radiology that are unique in Canada. Full time university researchers in partnership with the largest radiology group in Canada provide the fellow one on one training, first exposure to a variety of imaging cases across multiple modalities, and the opportunity to train medical students and radiology residents. This combination serves as an ideal setting for advanced subspecialty training in Medical Imaging.
