All the general information that you need is available in the Resident Information Booklet (PDF) If you want to get the flavour of what teaching is going on in the program currently link to the "RTP Cafe."
We feel strongly that active participation in research is the only method to obtain a thorough appreciation for appropriate use of the literature. As part of residency training, a minimum three-month period dedicated to research is required, with an additional three months of research time available on an elective basis. Find out more about this requirement.
The department will be amalgamating its services at one site, Victoria Hospital, in mid 2011 approximately. This will change the character (but not the quality) of our program.
- Canadian medical-school graduates must make application through the CaRMS process.
- International Medical Graduates (IMGs) must follow the application process as outlined by the Centre for the Evaluation of Health Professionals Educated Abroad (CEHPEA). You cannot apply directly to the program director.
- Those wishing information about transfer into the program should contact
Susanne Deakin , Post-grad Educational Program Administrator
Usually, there are six CaRMS positions available each year. In general, the selection committee prefers candidates to have a broad clinical background and at least some Ob/Gyn electives. Meaningful reference letters also constitute an important part of the application.
The selection process involves all departmental post-graduate education committee members. Applicants are invited in December for an interview in February. Failure to attend these interview sessions precludes consideration for a CaRMS ranking. Selection is based on the interview assessments, CaRMS application materials, including the applicant's curriculum vitae and academic record, and letters of recommendation.
Successful applicants are expected to respond in writing to the contract offer within one week. Failure to do so may result in the position being offered to an alternate candidate and contravenes the CaRMS contract.
The Department offers two subspecialty training programs:
Applicants must expect to have successfully completed all requirements of their post graduate residency training program in Ob/Gyn prior to the start of these programs in order to be eligible to apply. Normal start date is July 1.
There may be an opportunity for fellowship training in UroGynecology as well. If you are interested and want more information, contact Dr. Tracey Crumley..
