Under-Graduate Medical Education (UGME)
Hosting More Than 400 Students Each Year
Our team hosts more than 400 students each year during their 3rd and 4th year of medical training.
Our core programs host students from the University of Ottawa for their mandatory clerkship rotations in Medicine.
You will spend 6 weeks with us in 3rd year, familiarizing yourself with Core Internal Medicine on one of our Clinical Teaching Units and then return in 4th year for 2 weeks spent in a subspecialty of their choice.
Our elective program hosts local, national, and international students, for elective rotations in many of our subspecialty programs.
Are you hoping to complete your residency or eventually practice in Ottawa? If so, come and do an elective with us!
Pre-CaRMS elective opportunities are in high demand so make sure you know the application deadlines and apply early.
uOttawa and medical students from other schools can get more information and apply for an elective opportunity with us via the AFMC portal
