Fellowship Program

The Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine at Queen's University offers post-certification fellowships in General Clinical Anesthesiology and Simulation and Medical Education. The fellowships are normally offered for 12 months but may be extended to 24 months after approval by the department. Please see the descriptions of each fellowship at the left side of this page.

Queen's University is one of the oldest universities in Canada and is located in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Kingston is ideally situated between Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Syracuse, New York. It is a historical city, Canada’s first capital, and 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 UNESCO World Heritage site), and its excellence in sailing and outdoor recreation. Kingston has a population of approximately 125,000 people, large enough to have all the amenities of a big city, but small enough to have a friendly atmosphere and a walkable, vibrant downtown.

Kingston Health Sciences Centre encompasses two separate teaching hospital sites, Kingston General Hospital (KGH) and Hotel Dieu Hospital (HDH) which, collectively, perform more than 15,000 surgical cases in all subspecialties each year. Kingston General is a 440-bed trauma and tertiary care center, the regional high-risk obstetrics centre with approximately 2,000 deliveries per year, and is home to the Acute Pain Management Service. The Hotel Dieu is an ambulatory medical centre with both outpatient and short term inpatient surgeries, Chronic Pain Clinic and interventional suite, and the Presurgical Consultation Clinic.
