Residents are students of the University of Calgary and must register and pay fees through the Office of Postgraduate Medical Education (PGME) in the Cumming School of Medicine (CSM). In addition, residents pay tuition to the University of Calgary.

Residents are also employees of Alberta Health Services (AHS).  Residents are represented by a contractual agreement between the Professional Association of Resident Physicians of Alberta (PARA) and The Educating and Employing Entities in the Province of Alberta (Alberta Health Services, University of Alberta, and University of Calgary), and are licensed by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta (CPSA).

Whether a resident is a new trainee or a returning trainee, the Office of Postgraduate Medical Education is the focal point for guiding residents through a vast network of inter-related organizations that are in place to support education and training.
