Program Highlights

Our program is fully accredited and well-established. Our graduates typically pass their Royal College exams the first time they take them and are welcomed as staff in centres across Canada.

Based at the University of Alberta Hospital, our program provides a longitudinal, integrated residency with exposure to adult and pediatric patients, and tertiary and community pathology.

We have a large zonal transfusion medicine service that gives our learners excellent exposure and experience.

We have close clinical relationships and share resources and teachers with other laboratory specialties, as well as adult and pediatric hematology for our academic half-day and joint hematology rounds.

General Information

Edmonton has the largest expanse of urban parkland in Canada. It is woven around the North Saskatchewan River, with valley parks and trails throughout 7,300 hectares.

Edmontonians are very welcoming and represent a beautiful melting pot of cultures. Festivals throughout the year ensure there is always something to celebrate.

Edmonton is one of the sunniest cities in Canada. Because of its northern location, Edmontonians enjoy long, lazy summer days. There is also quick and easy access to the magnificent Rocky Mountains, which are spectacular in every season.

Edmonton boasts attractions and activities to suit young and old, including music (Edmonton Symphony Orchestra), Galaxyland indoor amusement park, World Waterpark, Telus World of Science, a vibrant arts and theatre scene and much more.
