​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Training over 450 fellows each year from over 55 different countries, UHN has a large and comprehensive Fellowship program, spanning an impressive variety of clinical sub-specialties across the Hospital's clinical and research portfolio.

What are Fellowships?

Clinical Fellowships 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.


How Can I Become a Fellow?

All fellows must be registered with the University of Toronto (UofT). Please follow the link for more information regarding International Medical Graduate registration with the UofT. Please follow the link for Canadian Medical graduates registration information.
