​​​​​​University Health Network (UHN) Fellowships are programs aimed at upskilling professionals working in any kind of health care environment beyond the scope of entry-to-practice education. Fellowships can be in any area, including, but not limited to, patient care (with appropriate professional registration and licensure in Ontario), hospital administration (e.g. operations, quality improvement, or education), leadership and research, to name a few. Fellowships at UHN are a minimum duration of six months to a maximum of two years (this does not include research fellowship requirements outlined by the Research Institutes at UHN). UHN Fellowships are structured to include educational objectives and demonstrate a learning plan for each Fellow. Regular feedback, assessment and evaluative components related to the learning objectives are also provided.

What are Fellowships?

Clinical Fellowships (Medical and Surgical) are opportunities for physicians to obtain post-certification training in specialized areas not normally acquired during residency training. Training may involve both clinical and research activities. Clinical fellows must be recognized specialists or family physicians. Fellowship training does not lead to certification by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) or by the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC). Fellows are either clinical fellows or research fellows (see below). Clinical Fellows also provide important teaching to residents and students and assist faculty with research. All Medical and Surgical Fellows must be registered with the University of Toronto Postgraduate Medical Education (PGME).
