The Saudi Bureau forwards your completed file to the Queen’s University Postgraduate Medical Education Office for consideration of acceptance into the Program.  At that time, the Program Director reviews your file and along with the Queen’s University Palliative Medicine Training Program Committee decides on whether to interview you.  The interview can be done by telephone.  Following the interview, you will be advised as to whether you will be offered a position.
