Eligibility for Licensure as a Clinical Fellow

In order to be considered for clinical fellowship training, applicants must be eligible for a certificate authorizing postgraduate education (an educational-type medical license) from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO), the body which regulates the practice of medicine in Ontario.

One of the CPSO’s key requirements for the licensure of clinical fellows is that the applicant must be recognized as a medical specialist/family physician in the jurisdiction where the applicant has been practicing medicine prior to the clinical fellowship.

It is possible to review the requirements for licensure in detail by downloading the application for clinical fellows from the CPSO website:

Please note that medical graduates apply for educational licensure by the CPSO only after they have been accepted for clinical fellowship training by the University.
