Leaders in Medicine

Welcome!

The Leaders in Medicine (LiM) joint degree program after years of planning became an approved program in 1996 and the first three students were enrolled in the Fall semester in 1997.   Since then the program has grown in scope and enrollment has increased consistently to a almost 70 joint degree students.  The program is designed to enable highly motivated students to complete a graduate and medical degree through the University of Calgary.  The program's objective is to train clinicians for a diverse range of careers in academic medicine.  Students can expect to develop a unique academic approach to clinical experiences, and to bring a clinical perspective to research.

Our students are registered in MD/PhD and MD/MSc programs, as well as MD/MBA and MD/MA degrees. The most common graduate programs selected by Leaders in Medicine participants are offered through the Cumming School of Medicine, although students from many other faculties including Business and Engineering are welcome to participate.
