Residents in all clinical Departments are eligible to apply to the Faculty of Medicine’s Clinician Investigator Program. Candidates must be nominated by their prospective research supervisor, program directors and department heads. Residents can apply for the CIP at anytime during their training including at the time of initial application to the specialty training program.

Two information sessions are held each year, in August and September to address inquiries about the application process and the program.

The research component of the training will normally be done after the clinical training, but flexible scheduling of the two components is possible.

Enrolment in a graduate degree program to complete a thesis or equivalent (graduate stream), or, if the trainee already has a graduate degree, enrolment in a postdoctoral fellowship (postdoctoral stream).
