Over the last couple of years, we have developed fellowship programs in various aspects of General Surgery. At the present time we have a Royal College accredited two-year program in Surgical Oncology. We have graduated three fellows to date, each pursuing careers in Surgical Oncology throughout Canada.
In conjunction with the Department of Intensive Care at the University of Calgary we devised a two-year Trauma Intensive Care Fellowship that is Royal College accredited. Candidates are competing with our medical colleagues for a position in Intensive Care Medicine. The general surgical candidates will then have their program developed to meet the guidelines of the American College for Trauma and ICU. At the present time, we have graduate one fellow and we have another soon to graduate.
We have also had the opportunity for a Clinical Based Fellowship in Trauma Surgery. This position requires external funding, but the terminal and enabling objectives have all been devised.
This is our year first year of an Endocrine Surgical Fellowship. At the present time the fellow requires external funding for a one or two year program developed solely to the area of Endocrine Surgical disease.

Finally, we have developed a Clinical Colorectal Fellowship. Currently, it has not been accredited through the Royal College and it consist of one-year of clinical training that require external funding. In the future, we hope to develop a two-year Royal College accredited program.
