Do we have an urban stream?
While we don’t have an ‘urban’ stream, our Eastern training stream provides the vast majority of training in our urban center — St. John’s, NL. Please see the Eastern Stream information.
- Once matched into a training stream, residents receive a list of choices that are centered around that stream.
- All residents matched to the stream rank their template preferences and indicate any special considerations that should be taken into account.
- The training streams allow residents to move to an area of the province and complete the vast majority of their training locally.
- Residents will travel outside of their training stream if a learning experience is not available locally.
- Templates that are based around program streams have resulted in much less resident travel!
Do we have any Enhanced Skills programs?

- Emergency Medicine – 4-6 residents per year
- Care of the Elderly – 1 x 12 month position per year
