Life in Kingston



For most postgraduate residents, coming to Queen's means moving to Kingston.  It's a thriving city rich in beauty, heritage, and culture that has been welcoming newcomers since it was first founded in 1673.  Kingston today is a major centre for commerce, education, and health services and home to an incredibly diverse and supportive medical community.  Over 1,000 medical students, residents, and clinical fellows are enroled in programs at Queen's University and 8.2% of the city's population are health care professionals, one of the highest percentages in the country. 

We hope that you will take time to explore the many advantages of life in Kingston and consider making this city home for the duration of your postgraduate training.
