The Department of Emergency Medicine at St. Paul’s Hospital in conjunction with the University of British Columbia is pleased to offer a clinical research fellowship in emergency medicine. Fellows must have completed an accredited emergency medicine training program and be eligible for a medical license in British Columbia.
The successful applicant will obtain a Masters of Health Science from the School of Population and Public Health during the two-year fellowship. Research advisory faculty will facilitate course selection and choice of thesis. Eligibility for the fellowship is contingent upon acceptance into the masters program.
During the two-year program, the fellow will work as a licensed emergency physician in St. Paul’s Hospital emergency department. The level of emergency faculty support will match the need and will gradually diminish during the training. Our intent is that, at the end of the fellowship, the trainee will have fully developed clinical skills, appropriate for independent emergency practice in a tertiary care urban hospital. Clinical shifts will generate funds for the salary and will be customized to optimize clinical experience and academic needs.
The fellow will focus on one major research program at St. Paul’s Hospital and be mentored by experienced clinical researchers in the arts of trial design, coordination, analysis and manuscript preparation. Authorship on multiple publications (including principal authorship on at least one major paper) is the goal. The fellow will have no departmental administrative or teaching responsibilities.
The deadline for applications is March 1st for positions to commence in July. Applications should include a curriculum vitae, names of two references, and a letter describing your goals and reasons for considering the fellowship.
