Postgraduate Fellowship Program
Dr. Elaine Yong is the current Postgraduate Fellowship Program Director, based out of Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. This program is distinctly separate from the resident training program in terms of administration and function; however, fellows are included in city-wide and special division events, including the annual research day. The University of Toronto Postgraduate Fellowship Program is a large program with several positions available. Trainees are eligible for application to this program after completion of a Gastroenterology Residency Training Program (in addition to being licensed in Internal Medicine). In addition, there are limited opportunities in hepatology training for Canadian internists, who have not completed a subspecialty residency program in gastroenterology.
Prospective fellows must have a designated supervisor, who is responsible for assessing the fellow’s progress and evaluations. Fellowships are available in basic research, clinical research, clinical care and translational care. Areas of postgraduate fellowship training include: Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Nutrition, Neurogastroenterolgy and Motility, Advanced Therapeutic Endoscopy, Hepatology, and Transplant Hepatology. The presence of postgraduate fellows enriches our program by facilitating the collaborator role and enhancing the learning of our GI Residents at all sites.
Please see the list of available fellowships for potential opportunities. Prospective fellows must apply directly to individual supervisors. Once accepted, funding arrangements must be made and the application process to the University’s Postgraduate office will be completed through Dr. Yong’s office.
