About Postgraduate Medical Education

The mission of Postgraduate Medical Education (PGME) at the Cumming School of Medicine (CSM) is to deliver outstanding clinical training that prepares graduating physicians to provide excellent health care to Albertans.

Each program offers unique, discipline-specific educational opportunities to support the development of competencies necessary for independent practice. Achievement of these competencies is also mandated to satisfy certification requirements of the Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) and the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC).

The PGME office oversees 65 accredited residency training programs which take place in a variety of clinical and academic settings in Calgary and in distributed sites throughout the province. Programs range from two to eight years in length, and each has independent, defined curricula established by the relevant College.
