Welcome to Queen's!

On behalf of the Postgraduate Medical Education Office and the School of Medicine, I am pleased to welcome you to Queen’s University and our regional community.  I sincerely hope that you will enjoy your time with us.

Queen’s has a rich history of excellence in medical education dating back more than one hundred and fifty years.  We are proud to offer challenging yet rewarding residency training programs taught by renowned physicians and scholars from across Canada and around the world.  Our teaching hospitals, together with Queen’s University, provide excellent facilities for teaching and learning while Kingston and our regional communities offer an outstanding quality of life.

With the support and collaboration of our various partners, it is our vision that your learning occurs in an atmosphere of excellent practice, discovery, collegiality, and respect for all as you move toward the eventual goal of independent practice.  The Postgraduate Medical Education Office is here to support your learning and provides a wide variety of services for residents.  We maintain an open-door policy and welcome inquiries from residents.

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate you on your achievements and to once again welcome you to our community.  I look forward to having you join us and hope to meet you in the months ahead.
