*A Fellow is a post-M.D. trainee who is registered with the Postgraduate Medical Education Office and is pursuing supervised clinical and/or research training which is NOT accreditable towards fulfilling certification eligibility requirements of existing residency programs recognized by the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC), or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC).
Fellowship objectives, expectations and commitments are discussed and agreed upon prior the start of the programs, as well as regular appraisals and opportunities for feedback are readily available. Fellows must, therefore, achieve their pre-determined academic goal in order to complete the fellowship successfully.
Successful applicants will have at least 50% of their time protected to allow them to engage in academic activities. During their time here, applicants will be part-funded to present their research findings at an appropriate venue within North America.
