Fellows are those trainees enrolled in a Royal College specialty or subspecialty program (including programs designated as accreditation without certification) or an accredited program of the College of Family Physicians of Canada, who are gaining an educational experience beyond certification requirements. Training undertaken during fellowship appointments may not be credited toward RCPSC/CFPC certification. The fellowship must be supported by the residency Program Director to ensure availability of resources and assess potential impact on training programs.
Clinical Fellows may hold a certificate of registration authorizing independent practice or postgraduate education. Research Fellows require no certificate (licence) while pursuing non-clinical or purely research experiences without patient contact which do not impact on patient care. Both Clinical and Research Fellows must register with the University Postgraduate Medical Education Office. Fellows must also obtain CMPA coverage and undergo a health review and annual TB test.
Note: All postgraduate training positions must be submitted to the Associate Dean, Postgraduate Medical Education for approval.
