The University of Ottawa, Department of Emergency Medicine (DEM) is one of Canada’s largest emergency training programs and a world leader in emergency medical education and research. The Clinical Emergency Medicine Fellowship is a unique program offered by the DEM to provide clinical post-graduate medical education for international fellows who have completed their emergency residency training. The fellowship is one year in duration and is a requirement for fellowship applicants from non-ACGME accredited emergency residency programs before they can be formally admitted into one of the DEM sub-specialized emergency fellowship training programs.
Fellows are awarded an Educational Medical Licence by The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) and work clinically as emergency physicians at The University of Ottawa teaching hospitals. The fellow is at all times under the supervision of a board-certified staff emergency physician. The goals of the fellowship are to expose fellows to the practice of emergency medicine at world class quaternary teaching hospitals and achieve the clinical emergency medicine competencies as set by The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
