Canadian Medical Graduates
We offer one-on-one rotations with preceptors, which allows time for non-service activities, such as research, education and leadership activities.
There is excellent work-life balance. Call is very light and there is no in-house call after the first year of training.
Residents are funded for four international conferences, two review courses, a radiologic anatomy course and a radiobiology course.
Career planning starts in PGY 1. The staff and program director have a network of connections to help you get the job or fellowship you want.
The resident group is extremely friendly and collegial.
Staff is easy to work with and supportive, helping residents succeed in the program and their careers.
Edmonton offers a low cost of living and there is lots of housing around the Cross Cancer Institute (you can walk to work).
You’ll have a good social life because there are lots of activities in Edmonton. It’s an easy drive to the mountains—three to four hours to Jasper or Banff.
