World-Class Emergency Medicine: To provide outstanding compassionate emergency care through practice-changing research and innovative medical education.
CCFP-EM Residency Program:We are very proud that we were one of the first CCFP-EM training programs in Canada (since 1979). It is a very dynamic and comprehensive 1- year program, affording a well-rounded experience to 5-6 residents each year.
RCPSC-EM Residency Program:Our RCPSC 5-year residency program is highly sought and we have over 50 residents in the PGY1-5 years. Our residents are offered a broad elective and fellowship experience to tailor their training and to cultivate academic interests.
Undergraduate EM Clerkship:This robust clerkship program consistently rates highest by medical students at the University of Ottawa, and we believe that it is the best clerkship experience at the faculty.
Fellowships:We offer training programs in several subspecialties including Point of Care Ultrasound, Research, EMS and Disaster, Pediatric Emergency Medicine and Simulation.
Medical Education Scholarship: Success of our educational programs is attributed to great people and an ever-expanding group of Education Scholars and Med-Ed experts.
Research Program:Our methodologists are at the forefront of EM research in Canada and internationally. Strengths include the derivation of clinical decision rules and practice guidelines in such fields as cardiovascular, stroke and diagnostic imaging.
