Adult Gastroenterology Training Program

General Objectives: Optional Third Year

The goals of an optional third year of training are tailored to individual needs, as identified during the second year. They may include acquiring skills in advanced therapeutic endoscopy, motility, medical education, research methodology, or any combination thereof. The availability of a third year is subject to salary support from peer-reviewed granting agencies (e.g. Canadian Institutes for Health Research, Canadian Association of Gastroenterology, Canadian Digestive Health Foundation, American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, American College of Gastroenterology, Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada), the private sector, or the Department of Medicine (e.g. Clinical Scholar model). Trainees interested in a third year of training are asked to discuss their plans early in the second year to permit sufficient time for applications to external or mobilization of internal resources.
