Offer Letters

The Department of Medicine (DoM) provides clinical and research offer letters that each division is required to use. The offer letters reflect guidelines and exemplars that have been identified by the Fellowship Education Advisory Committee (FEAC). By using these offer letters, then DoM ensures consistency across all fellowships, while ensuring that each of our programs are compliant and simultaneously protected.

CANMEDS Educational Objectives for Clinical Fellowships

FEAC has approved the following templates for educational objectives for clinical fellows, to reduce variability and ensure a more consistent approach to education for clinical fellows.

Pre-Entry Assessment Period (PEAP)

International Medical Graduates (IMGs) must complete a 12 week PEAP assessment period successfully to obtain full CPSO licensure for the duration of their fellowship. Please visit Post MD Education PEAP for more details. 

Self-Funded Fellowships

Self-funded fellows are defined as trainees who enter into training programs without funding from their program, host hospital, or any other type of funding source. The trainee claims sole financial responsibility throughout the training program. Trainees are to work with supervisors to complete the self-funding proposal, which will then be reviewed by the Fellowship Self-Funding Committee. 

New Fellowship Application

Any division who wishes to offer a new fellowship is required to go through a formal new fellowship application process. The application is to initially be completed by the supervisor and the fellowship program director, and then reviewed by the residency program director (at the Residency Program Committee level) and the final approval of the division director. Once all signatures are obtained, submit both the completed application forms for review to DoM fellowship coordinator.


This Sharefile contains application requirements for both clinical and research fellowships, which are mandatory for registration within the Department of Medicine.
