The Hematology residency training program at the University of Calgary is a two year Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons accredited subspecialty training program in benign and malignant hematology that is two years in duration after completion of core internal medicine training. We provide training in the broad spectrum of hematologic diseases through the Tom Baker Cancer Centre (hematologic malignancies) and the Foothills Medical Centre, Peter Lougheed Centre, and South Health Campus as well as opportunities for electives off site. Residents receive exposure to haemophilia and thalassemias/sickling disorders through the Rare Blood and Bleeding Disorders Clinic, hematopoietic stem cell transplant through the Alberta Blood and Marrow Transplant Program, malignancies through the Tom Baker Cancer Centre, and a variety of benign disorders through a variety of outpatient clinics including the University of Calgary Medical Clinics and Peter Lougheed Centre. We provide laboratory experience related to hematology including blood smear, bone marrow and lymph node pathology, transfusion medicine, and ancillary testing. There is ample flexible time in the program to pursue clinical elective and research interests.
We provide mentorship in research and career planning, and there are opportunities for additional training in Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation, Lymphoma, and Bleeding disorders. We are located in Calgary, a vibrant and growing city close to the Rocky Mountains and recreational areas including Banff National Park.
