The purpose of Postgraduate Medical Education (PGME) is to ensure excellence in the educational experience of all trainees and to assist the faculty in delivering an excellent educational experience.  

The Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry at Western University offers over 50 postgraduate medical education training programs leading to certification by either the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC).  

Postgraduate training programs range from two to seven years, with the opportunity for fellowships following residency.  There are two main teaching centres situated on five sites affiliated with our postgraduate training programs, including London Health Sciences Centre and St. Joseph's Health Care London.  

In addition to the affiliated teaching hospitals, Western University has access to an extensive number of rural and community training sites in both northern & southern Ontario.  Residents from many programs participate in the Distributed Education Network (DEN).
