Adult Thrombosis Medicine Program

In January 2018, McGill University received accreditation by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) for the newly developed Area of Focused Competence (AFC) Diploma Program in Adult Thrombosis Medicine.

Adult Thrombosis Medicine is that area of enhanced competence within medicine concerned with the investigation, diagnosis, and medical management of patients with venous and arterial thromboembolic disease in a variety of clinical contexts.

The McGill AFC Program in Adult Thrombosis Medicine consists of 1 year of additional clinical training and is competency-based. The AFC trainee must have Royal College certification or equivalent in Internal Medicine or Emergency Medicine, or enrolment in a Royal College accredited residency program in these areas. All trainees must be certified in their primary specialty in order to be eligible to submit a Royal College certification portfolio in Adult Thrombosis Medicine. Trainees who graduate from the McGill AFC in Adult Thrombosis Medicine program will receive a Diploma certificate from the RCPSC (the DRCPSC).
