Advanced training for residents
Diploma programs offer advanced training in areas of focused competence, or AFC programs. These programs are only open to those who have previously completed training in a base specialty and/or subspecialty, and are intended for those who want to enhance their skills or knowledge in a particular, focused area.
Diploma programs are fully accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Though programs usually last from 1-2 years, training is fully competency-based, with certification by means of central review of a summative portfolio.
Dalhousie currently has two diploma programs: transfusion medicine and interventional cardiology.
