The Unit


The University of Toronto Trauma Program offers a 1 or 2 year clinical fellowship in Trauma and Acute Care Surgery.

These two centers serve a population of over 6 million and with over 1800 trauma team activations (1400 ISS>15) annually. While the trauma fellowship includes elective time in an ICU environment, candidates who are seeking additional training in critical care might want to consider combining this fellowship with a critical care fellowship with or without accreditation by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Applications for candidates interested in beginning July 1st must be received by June 1 the previous year before.
