UBC Radiology

The Radiology Fellowship programs provide advanced post-graduate training to eligible candidates in a sub-specialist setting. Fellows can expect excellent clinical exposure with a good case volume and a supervised learning experience and are encouraged to participate in basic science and clinical research projects. Protected academic time is also provided alongside the teaching of research methodology, epidemiology, statistics, and study design.

The Department of Radiology, University of British Columbia has a long history of excellence in RCPSC-accredited (Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of Canada) residency training. As per the College of Physicians and Surgeon’s of British Columbia (CPSBC) policy and guidelines, clinical fellows can apply for a one or two-year fellowship in the same or different sub-specialty with Fellowship Director’s approval. Clinical fellows can also apply for a third year of Fellowship under extenuating circumstances. The acceptance to the third year fellowship is contingent to CPSBC’s approval.
