Admission Requirements

Application Steps

The Postgraduate Medical Education Office offers clinical and clinical research fellowship programs for recognized specialists or family physicians.

Fellow: A trainee enrolled in programs not recognized by the RC and gaining an educational experience beyond the requirements of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and/or the College of Family Physicians. 

Fellowship: A fellowship is an opportunity to obtain advanced training and/or to acquire more specialized expertise not normally acquired during residency training, and it does not lead to certification by the RCPSC or the CFPC, and cannot be credited toward national certification requirements. Applicants must have satisfactorily completed residency training as well as Royal College or Board Certification.

Applicants to fellowship training programs must have satisfactorily completed residency training as well as either Royal College or Board Certification.  Candidates must be deemed eligible to receive a training card by the Collège des Médecins du Québec.

Residents who have obtained their MD in Québec and who are currently registered in a residency training program in a Québec Faculty of Medicine in a contingent régulier or contingent particulier position can apply for fellowship programs via formation complémentaire only. Candidates who are not registered in a residency program in a Québec Faculty of Medicine are not eligible to apply under this category.
