I am a Postgraduate Medical Trainee

What are postgraduate medical trainees?

You are a postgraduate medical trainee if you are a physician enrolled in a program recognized by either the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada or The College of Family Physicians of Canada AND you are working to fulfill the requirements for one of the following:

  • primary discipline certification
  • certification of special competence
  • a program designated as accreditation without certification

As a postgraduate trainee, you may hold a certificate of registration for postgraduate education (postgraduate training licence) or a certificate of registration authorizing independent practice (postgraduate practicing licence).

To obtain a postgraduate medical trainee licence in Nova Scotia, you must be registered with the Dalhousie University Postgraduate Medical Education Office or a PGME office in another Canadian jurisdiction.
