The Leaders in Medicine Program is designed to enable highly motivated students to complete a graduate and medical program degree through the University of Calgary. The program's objective is to train clinicians for a diverse range of careers - from academic medical research to the design, management, and evaluation of healthcare delivery systems. Trained in the combined degree program you can expect to develop a unique academic approach to clinical experiences, and to bring a clinical perspective to research.
We have a diverse group of students registered in MD/PhD and MD/MSc programs, as well as a several who have completed MD/MBA and MD/MA degrees. Although the most common graduate programs selected by Leaders in Medicine participants are offered through the Faculty of Medicine, students from other programs including Business and Engineering have participated. The LIM program is flexible and when possible will work with a student to accommodate his/her interests.
