The postdoctoral Clinical Microbiology Fellowship Training Program at the University of Manitoba is a program for Ph.D. graduates in microbiology to train to pursue a career as a clinical microbiologist and function within a diagnostic microbiology laboratory setting. The two-year Program includes training in the microbiology laboratories of the Winnipeg Health Sciences Centre, St. Boniface General Hospital, Westman Regional Laboratory, Cadham Provincial Laboratory, and the National Microbiology Laboratory, as well as didactic lectures, seminars, and rounds. The Program meets the training requirements necessary to sit for the certification examinations offered by the Canadian College of Microbiologists.
In the past one trainee has been accepted into the program every two years. The current fellow will finish in 2014. The next application deadline is presently under review.
