The University of Ottawa Psychiatry Residency Training Program is a mid-sized program with an average of 14 residents per year. It offers training in diverse teaching hospitals, a 1:4 resident/faculty ratio and a wide range of training of opportunities beyond an excellent core training program. Residents can apply to one of three subspecialty programs: Child and Adolescent psychiatry, Geriatric psychiatry and Forensic psychiatry. The program provides many opportunities and strong support for resident research.  An optional research stream is available for those wanting to pursue a Master’s or PH.D. Residents interested in medical education can also enter an educational stream that leads to a certificate or Master’s in medical education at the University of Ottawa. Your psychiatry training can be tailored to your interests.
