Royal College guidelines allow for simultaneous completion of the fourth year of internal medicine and the first year of rheumatology training.
Trainees benefit from weekly clinics in a variety of community practice settings under the supervision of community practice members of the section. These periods provide exposure to different types of clinical rheumatology cases while giving insight into the operation of an office in community practice.
Ample elective time is allotted for residents to explore areas related to their career pathway. External elective rotations are encouraged and may be research-based, clinical or a combination. Orthopaedic, dermatology and osteoporosis are some of the many possible elective opportunities.

Residents will have an invaluable experience in evaluating patients for possible rheumatic diseases or relapses and complications of their known rheumatic illness admitted as either in-patients or presenting to the emergency department. It is expected that the resident will progress from being hands-on to a more supervisory role as the periods progress and their knowledge base grows.
Complete residency details, including program curriculum, application requirements and selection criteria can be found on the Canadian Resident Matching Service website.
