McGill University Clinical Thrombosis Fellowship and the Area of Focused Competence in Adult Thrombosis Medicine Fellowship

Under the Directorship of Dr Maral Koolian, the McGill University Thrombosis Fellowship and the Adult Focused Competency in Adult Thrombosis Medicine Fellowship are based out of the Centre of Excellence in Thrombosis and Anticoagulation Care (CETAC), Jewish General Hospital.


This is a 1-year clinical fellowship (non-AFC Fellowship) designed to acquire and consolidate expertise in Thrombosis, namely the investigation, diagnosis, and medical management of patients with venous and arterial thromboembolic disease in a variety of clinical contexts. During the fellowship, the trainee will acquire knowledge of the physiology, pathology, diagnosis and treatment of thrombotic diseases through a variety of activities, including direct inpatient and outpatient care and exposure to pertinent diagnostic laboratory and imaging facilities. The trainee will be assigned to the in-patient Thrombosis Consult Service as well as the outpatient Thrombosis Clinic, Anticoagulation Clinic, Perioperative Bridging Clinic at the JGH and CETAC where he/she will be directly supervised and taught by Thrombosis attending physicians during all rotations. Fellows are encouraged to undertake a research project or quality improvement project alongside their clinical training.

The AFC Program in Adult Thrombosis Medicine consists of one year of clinical training as described above (c.f. one-year Clinical Fellowship) and is competency-based. Trainees who graduate from the McGill AFC in Adult Thrombosis Medicine program will receive a Diploma certificate from the RCPSC (the DRCPSC).
