Clinical fellows must be eligible for a certificate authorizing postgraduate education from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO). The CPSO requires the applicant be recognized as a medical specialist/family physician in the jurisdiction where the applicant has been practicing medicine. Trainees apply to the CPSO only after they have been accepted into a clinical fellowship program. Research fellows have no patient contact, meaning licensure with the CPSO is not required. The research fellow must possess a medical degree, and meet the program’s own admission criteria.
Requirements for Canadians coming from outside of Ontario:
Must include a copy of their current provincial licensure that is valid to their Ontario start date.
Learners that have not sat their board certification are required to provide a letter from their residency program stating the dates they will successfully complete the program and sit their certification exams.
