HIGHLIGHTS
  • We have four major training sites (University of Alberta Hospital, Royal Alexandra Hospital, Grey Nuns Community Hospital and Misericordia Community Hospital) that provide a wide variety of surgical and trauma exposure.

  • Our small program size, with few fellows, allows for early resident involvement in advanced case work.

  • Our large catchment area encompassing adjacent provinces and territories increases resident exposure to less common presentations and pathology.

  • We will have fully adopted the Royal College’s Competence by Design (CBD) initiative by July 2021.


GENERAL INFORMATION
  • Edmonton is the northernmost major city in Canada, making it Canada’s Gateway to the North.
