Clinical Fellowship & AFC Programs

The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, University of Calgary, together with Calgary Laboratory Services, offer a unique opportunity for Clinical Fellowship & AFC training in a vibrant medical and cultural setting of Canada's "Heart of the New West" located in the foothills of the picturesque Rocky Mountains.

Our principal mission is to prepare trainees for careers in academic diagnostic pathology and laboratory medicine.  Using extensive clinical material and mentor-ship of ~77 dedicated faculty members of our department, the AFC Trainees and fellows are trained to become knowledgeable in their field.

The Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine (Calgary Laboratory Services) performs more than 20 million laboratory tests per year.  In Anatomical Pathology, we examine approximately 115,000 surgical cases and 210,000 gynecologic/10,000 non-gynecologic cytology cases per year, and perform approximately 210 adult and 350 pediatric/fetal autopsies per year.

The fellowship programs provide 1-2 years of intensive training in the respective subspecialty areas. In addition to clinical expertise, the fellows acquire a working knowledge of the theoretical basis of the specialty, including its foundations in the basic medical sciences. Opportunities for participation in collaborative clinical research are available and encouraged.

Prospective applicants can see how their personal goals compare with those offered by individual subspecialty programs listed below.
