In 2003, the University of Calgary Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Residency Training Program commenced its 1st year.  There are now 11 residents in the program.  In 2012-13 we received two residents through the CaRMS match and one resident transferred from another Canadian University program.  Currently we do not accept outfunded resident applicants.

The Program has developed a very active academic half day with heavy reliance on feedback from our residents. The Residency Training Committee meets monthly (summer excepted) and the Program Director has formal biannual meetings with each resident.  Several residents from other specialties and Universities rotate through Physiatry electives each year encouraging interdisciplinary education and collaboration.

The Division of Physiatry and PMR Residency training program provides teaching for undergraduate medical education.  There were 13 formal electives for medical students in the last year and several Meds 440 course and shadowing students.  Physiatry also provides support to the medical school in Course 1 (MSK) and Course 5 (Neuro) teaching for small groups, lectures, and clinical skills.

The Senior Physiatry Resident clinic occurs one half day per week and provides service to General Physiatry patients (ie. non sub-specialty Physiatry patients).  Two Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation residents provide outpatient consultation and follow up while supervised by a staff physiatrist throughout their final year of training.  This allows further outpatient clinic exposure, experience in continuity of care, development of managerial and time management skills, opportunity for OSCE examination preparation, teaching medical elective students, and exposure to varied clinical diagnoses that may not be typically seen in the subspecialty clinics and inpatient services.
