The U Ottawa Department of Emergency Medicine offers a Clinical Research Fellowship designed for residents and/or graduates of certified residency programs in emergency medicine. The goal of the fellowship is to provide a sound background in the principles and practice of clinical research for physicians who plan a career in academic emergency medicine. We offer a 2-year program that has fellows obtaining a MSc degree from the U Ottawa Department of Epidemiology. Fellows will plan and conduct clinical research under the close and regular supervision of experienced researchers (Ian Stiell MD, George Wells PhD, and others of the Emergency Medicine Research Group). We have trained many fellows from around the world. Fellows will have limited clinical responsibilities working as junior faculty and will have no teaching or administrative duties. Fellows can expect an annual income well in excess of that paid to residents.
Canadian Residents may do the 1st year of the Fellowship during their PGY4 year and the 2nd year following their PGY5 year.
International Fellows are required to be self-funded and will not be paid by our institution. All International Fellows are responsible for obtaining a student visa.
