Our training program is a five-year, fully developed competence by design (CBD) model. We provide training that prepares our residents for practice in any environment or for progression to subspecialty training.
The two-block Transition to Discipline phase is built around a comprehensive boot camp, which uses didactic, clinical, simulation and skills sessions to provide the set of basic skills to support the next phases of training.
In Foundations and Core, residents become confident across the spectrum of non-subspecialty practice then subspecialty practice respectively. In Transition to Practice, residents fully develop their autonomy as consultants and also have the opportunity to work on Fellowship level EPAs.
One-on-one teaching in a wide variety of clinical experiences with engaged teachers is the heart of our program. We prepare residents to maximize that learning with a multifaceted academic program that includes:
- Staff led junior and senior seminar series
- A state-of-the-art Simulation Facility, where we provide staff-run clinical skills sessions and immersive simulation in all five years
- A POCUS training curriculum
- Visiting professor series
- Weekly case rounds and grand rounds
- General and subspecialty Journal Clubs
- Structured and unstructured selfstudy
Excellence in intraoperative care will always be at the heart of anesthesia, but no longer ends there. Our scope of practice is now Perioperative Medicine. We embrace this future with enthusiasm. During your training here you will:
- Regularly work with and learn to lead highly trained multidisciplinary OR teams, including high risk nurses anesthesia clinical assistants and perfusionists.
- Coordinate patient assessment and optimization in our pre-anesthesia clinics.
- Manage the postoperative acute pain team.
- Manage high-risk patients in Canada’s only anesthesia-run perioperative step-down unit.
- Develop your own consultant level skills in POCUS, Regional Anesthesia and Advanced Monitoring.
