The University of Calgary has transitioned to use of the AFMC Student Portal to process visiting elective applications. For more information about applying for elective opportunities, policies as well as student requirements, please click on the AFMC link which will direct you to the University of Calgary institution profile on the portal.
You can reach the Visiting Electives Program Coordinator via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Failure to follow any posted policies can be considered as a professionalism issue.
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. It is still possible to get experience in Alberta but it will be through the CPSA observership policy. Observerships are subject to the requirements of the Alberta Health Services' Job Shadowing /Observational Experience policy(http://www.albertahealthservices.ca/careers/page539.asp) and the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta's Medical Practice Observership/Experience guidelines. Please visit these institutions' websites for more information. This experience would not be registered with nor sanctioned by the UME program at the University of Calgary.
