Resident Experience

A resident
PGY-1
Excellent exposure to bread and butter of pediatrics but also to the more rare and complex conditions seen at an academic center. Very supportive program directors and admin, as well as preceptors. Resident wellness is heavily integrated and focused on in the program which makes for healthier residents overall. The staff have been very welcoming and take active roles in teaching.
Resident wellness , collegiality, emphasis on learning and graduated responsibility.
Closely knit and supportive. We have been fortunate to get together and actually meet one another in safe settings, and we all look out for another as residents. Staff are invested in their learners and very respectful of other obligations such as ahd’s, call, etc.
Plenty of activities to do in Edmonton especially outside either locally in the River Valley or at nearby national parks. There also plenty of festivals and events to attend, and excellent cuisine especially Viatnemese, Korean, and ice cream!
The night float system is incredible and allows you to commit yourself to rotations without having to take as many post-call days. We also have regularly scheduled wellness days and multiple events organized between years to facilitate connectedness.
Becoming a more competent resident and improving my knowledge of pediatrics, in addition to building strong connections with my colleagues and caring for my patients and their families.
