Our five-year residency program offer trainees the opportunity to treat a broad spectrum of plastic surgery patients, including large volumes of general trauma cases, acute and reconstructive hand surgery, burn surgery and virtually all aspects of facial trauma.
Acute and reconstructive microsurgical experience is offered at the University of Alberta and Royal Alexandra hospitals.
Our residents work and learn in established outpatient clinics in brachial plexus and congenital hand issues, hand surgery, cleft lip and palate surgery, general plastic surgery and burn surgery.
The Institute for Reconstructive Sciences in Medicine (iRSM) unit at the Misericordia Community Hospital also offers experience in the use of Osseo integrated implants and maxillofacial prosthetics in a carefully selected group of patients.
Edmonton has great recreational opportunities in its beautiful river valley.
