Clinical Fellowships

The Department of Anesthesiology at Queen's University offers a post certification one-year fellowship in General Clinical Anesthesiology. The fellowship is designed to provide enhanced broad-based clinical training and responsibility beyond the certification level as well as clinical research opportunities. The clinical fellowship is designed to meet the needs of those interested in pursuing either an academic career or in furthering their clinical skills prior to entering clinical practice. This fellowship is normally offered for 12 months but may be extended to 24 months.

Queen's University is one of the oldest universities in Canada and is located in Kingston Ontario, Canada. Kingston is approximately equidistant between Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Syracuse, New York. It is a historical city famous for its post-secondary educational institutions, its strategic military location at the confluence of Lake Ontario, the St. Lawrence River, and the Rideau canal systems (a recently named UNESCO World Heritage site), and for its excellence in sailing and outdoor recreation. Kingston has a population of approximately 120 000, and is therefore large enough to have all the amenities of a big city, but small enough to have a friendly atmosphere.

Kingston General Hospital (KGH) and Hotel Dieu Hospital (HDH) are the 2 primary teaching hospitals of Queen's University. Kingston General is a 500-bed trauma and tertiary care center, whereas the Hotel Dieu is an ambulatory center. Together, more than 15 000 surgical cases per year are performed in the operating rooms, and KGH has approximately 2000 deliveries per year, as well as an Acute Pain Management Service. Clinics held in the HDH include Chronic Pain, Pre-operative Assessment and Anesthesia Consultation.
