The University of Calgary has more than 60 residency training programs.

Leaders in Medicine Program (LIM)

The LIM joint degree program offers students the opportunity to pursue graduate studies (Master’s, PhD or MBA) in conjunction with the Medical Doctor Program (MD). The goal of this joint program is to train highly motivated students to become the future leaders of clinical and investigative medicine. The LIM Affiliate program is designed to allow students enrolled in medical school, who may have already completed a graduate degree or who were accepted into medical school without a graduate degree but have a strong interest in research, to participate in the program if interested in both the clinical and research part of medicine.
