Subspecialty Residency Training

Graduating excellent medical oncologists

Accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, Dalhousie’s medical oncology subspecialty residency training program focuses on graduating excellent medical oncologists to practice in the Atlantic provinces.

Since this is a relatively small program, you’ll experience considerable one-on-one training and a unique curriculum covering all aspects of medical oncology. Plus, the division’s clinical role as a regional treatment and referral service will expose you to a broad base of regional patients with a wide variety of oncological problems.

As a resident, you'll act as a consulting oncologist and be considered an important member of a close-knit and collegial multidisciplinary team.

The division also maintains an active clinical research group focused on pharmacoeconomic, outcomes and clinical research. You’ll be encouraged to take part in research activities as part of your training.

How to apply

Simply apply for the program through the Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS). To qualify, you must be in your final year or have successfully completed an internal medicine residency program approved by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
