The University of Calgary only accepts students from Canadian & LCME (http://www.lcme.org/directory.htm) accredited medical schools. Students from all other universities are NOT eligible for electives in Calgary. The only pathway for accredited medical training in Alberta is through the University of Calgary or University of Alberta undergraduate programs. If you are not eligible you may still find an opportunity for a hands-off shadowing/observership experience with Alberta Health Services: http://www.albertahealthservices.ca/careers/Page12347.aspx. Job Shadowing is subject to the requirements of the Alberta Health Services' Job Shadowing Policy (http://www.albertahealthservices.ca/assets/aboutus/Policies/clp-ahs-pol-job-shadowing.pdf).
This experience would not be registered nor recognized training by the UME program at the University of Calgary.
