Resident Experience

Alex Bain
PGY-3
The highlights are the comraderie amongst residents, extensive exposure to all Urology subspecialties in the OR, beautiful city to live in, and the very cohesive and friendly staff that are eager to teach.
Best aspects of being a resident in the program: I feel very supported by all my colleagues, I get great exposure to all aspects of Urology. I genuinely am laughing at work every day, it is a very fun environment.
Very supportive, fun, hard-working, and team-oriented. Everyone works hard but we work together as a team. We are there for each other through the highs and lows.
It can be tough to find the time but we all make time for family and one or two extracurricular activities we love. I always try to get outdoors, go to workout classes, ski in the winter, and check out new restaurants and bars in Edmonton.
Our program director has an open door policy and we can go to him with any concern professional or personal. There are no issues in terms of getting medical leave, paternity/maternity leave, or stress leave. We try to get together outside of work as a resident group to routinely check in and make sure we are all doing okay.
Looking forward to next year: with COVID restrictions slowly coming to an end, I am looking forward to big gatherings with all the residents and staff so we can enjoy time together outside of work in a safe manner.
