Recognizing the need for physicians to acquire advanced Skills University of Ottawa in Canada is offering postgraduate fellowships for graduates of an accredited Canadian or USA residency program in the early stage of their career path. It is assumed that here is a well recognized need for young resident graduates to travel to other centres to acquire these skills before returning to Ottawa where they will develop innovative programs of excellence to enhance our educational and health care mandate. Canadian or USA students are eligible for this offer and that at Canada, USA or abroad.
